September 12, 1990

The photo caption on the front page of yesterday's Anne Arundel County Sun incorrectly identified Albert W. McCarthy as the founder of the local chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

The organization was founded in 1920 by a group of Annapolis businessmen. McCarthy and his wife, who came to Annapolis in the mid-to late 1920s, were substantial benefactors of the organization.

The Anne Arundel County Sun regrets the error.
