It has been suggested that the Disqualified Colors were eliminated based
upon the opinions of very few people in key positions in the BTCA who
simply didn't like those colors.

Should anyone think the creation and the subsequent refinement of the
Boston Terrier standard was taken lightly, I invite you to read the comments
below by Edward Axtell in his book published in 1910.  This book is often
referred to by breeders of Disqualified Colors as proof the colors existed at
the beginning of the breed.  This book is also proof that the BTCA put
careful planning, thought and reasoning into the elimination of those colors.

One cannot point to a resource as proof in one breath and then disrespect
its ideals in another.

"The standard adopted by the Boston Terrier Club in 1900 was the result of earnest, sincere,
thoughtful deliberations of as conservative and conscientious a body of men as could anywhere
be gotten together. Nothing was done in haste, the utmost consideration was given to every
detail, and it was a thoroughly matured, and practically infallible guide to the general character
and type of the breed by men who were genuine lovers of the dog for its own sake, who were
perfectly familiar with the breed from its start, and who were cognizant of every point and
characteristic which differentiated him from the bulldog on the one side and the bull terrier on
the other, and while admitting the just claims of every other breed, believed sincerely that the
dog evolved under their fostering care was the peer, if not the superior, of all in the particular
sphere for which he was designed, an all-round house dog and companion. In the writer’s
estimation this type of dog, for the particular position in life, so to speak, he is to occupy, could
not in any way be improved, and the mental qualities that accompany the physical
characteristics (which are particularly specified in the first chapter) are of such inestimable value
that any possible change would be detrimental."
