The Fund was initiated several years ago by the American Killifish Association to honor the memory of George Maier, not only a warm and a wonderful man who helped untold numbers of killifish hobbyists, but also a founding member of both the American Killifish Association and the Chicago Killifish Association, the oldest affiliate club in the U.S.
