Weistrop picked a very New England subject for her medal: the very common grey squirrel. As she wrote in the brochure that accompanied the medal:
"The grace, the personality, the rich forms of the squirrel are so accepted that they are almost overlooked. By studying, observing, and appreciating all forms of wildlife, man can learn to understand himself."
This medal was pretty enthusiastically received by the members who seemed to agree that it is one of the finest animal medals they had ever seen.
The medal measures 73mm in diameter and was produced by the Medallic Art Company. A reported 984 pieces were struck in bronze.
