For children growing up in the early 1900s, Seckatary Hawkins was the main character in a series of beloved books, newspaper serials and radio shows written by Covington, KY author Robert F. Schulkers. His stories, which stressed such values as loyalty, honesty, friendship and patriotism, led to the birth of the Fair & Square Clubs of Seckatary Hawkins in 1923, with the motto “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”
Nearly a century later the clubs still endure at Behringer-Crawford Museum. The museum’s collections include a selection of Seck Hawkins memorabelia, including books, statuettes, comic strips, pennants. . . even a Seckatary Hawkins board game. A display case in the Rivers Gallery holds some of the collections along with a model of the Fair & Square Club’s fictional clubhouse
The Fair & Square Club exists on the internet and holds meetings every two years in Covington. Membership is free. To learn more or to join, visit www.seckatary.com.
