Model: 1S
Serial Number: 1918
Date Purchased: 01/01/1970

I bought this trumpet from my trumpet teacher, who was a faculty member at Western Illinois University in the early 1970s. I was a Chemistry faculty member at Monmouth College Illinois. I played for pleasure only. I started playing in the fifth grade, about 1947. I wanted a trumpet ever since I heard a trumpet soloist with the Denver Municipal Band in City Park when I was about 5 years old. In the 1960s & 70s, I used to play baroque duets with my organist wife. She has died, and I no longer play, but I keep meaning to get it out and play again. This was the first decent instrument I ever owned. I'm 70 now, and still very active.
