After reading all available material on taxidermy, Van Dyke concluded that the state of the art was unsatisfactory. He thus began experimenting with different designs and materials to produce his own forms, artificial eyes, and adhesive materials. The forms are the interior parts of exhibits, to be covered by skins or feathers. In 1949, Van Dyke distributed a one page mimeographed sheet to the taxidermy trade offering a limited selection of deer head and bird body forms and several special order item s. By 1973, Van Dyke's catalog offered approximately 600 different types and sizes of forms and 1,200 types and sizes of eyes, produced in a factory located in a former creamery and locker plant. At that point his business supplied about 70 percent of the United States market and about 60 percent of the world market for glass eyes. In addition, Van Dyke began designing and producing a line of wood panels and plaques for mounting. To aid taxidermists, he also sold miscellaneous supplies, which included chemical compounds and tools which he either developed, bought wholesale and repackaged for resale, or bought wholesale and altered and improved before resale. The company is now owned by operates as a subsidiary of McKenzie Sports Products ; these guides are practical and illustrated with black and white photographs as well as diagrams explaining the techniques used. ; mark on cover of first booklet ; scarce ; VG.
