Clamper Association of Roisterous Peddlers was founded May 16, 1987 (5992). Near this spot, five Clamper hawkers, headed by Walt Walters, after much deliberation and libation, organized this stupendous association, dedicated to the procuring of gold dust for the coffers of the E Clampus Vitus, to further its honorable and worthy endeavors.
C.A.R.P. has dedicated this plaque in honor of its founder, Absalom (Walt) Walters, Jr. Clamper extradoinare [sic]. Born in Lownote, Arkansas and ascended to Paradise. Went to the Golden Hills on December 30, 1989 at the tender age of 49. The Peddlers of E.C.V. miss him.
