In the early 1900s, Nipper – a dog with his ear pricked up to a vintage record player – became famous as the trademark for the Camden-based Victor Talking Machine Company. Although Nipper was British and likely never saw South Jersey in his lifetime, his remains are here now – and plans are in the works to create a memorial to the famous pooch, says musician and entrepreneur Graham Alexander. Expected to open in the spring, the Master’s Voice Memorial will be a public garden, mural and tomb for the remains of Nipper on the grounds outside the Victor Vault in Berlin, Graham’s live-music venue that also houses master recordings and artifacts from Camden’s manufacturing heyday.

“We are exceedingly proud to honor the historic and contemporary workers of the music and home entertainment industries,” says Graham, whose Victor Company has revived music manufacturing in South Jersey.
