New offering from the Reed Organ Society! 

The History of the

Story & Clark Organ Co.

 by David M. Knowles, PhD

This 300-page book covers all aspects of the history of this important player in the development and sales of the reed organ during the latter part of the nineteenth century. Story & Clark was widely known for the quality of its case design and its unique stop-knobs, from all metal to china. The text covers the history of the several companies that eventually became the Story & Clark Company as well as the biographies of the principal players. The book contains over 250 pages of appendices that include catalog pages, trade cards, patents, and many other important references covering all aspects of the company�s history. This is an important reference work that you will want to add to your library.  

About the Author
Dr. Knowles spent his professional life as a geologist, working in the field as well as teaching geology at Lake Superior State University through 1996. After his retirement, he and his wife Shirley took on a number of projects that had been waiting for his time availability, including the history of this company. It was an interest piqued one wet evening in the fall of 1948 when his headlights illuminated a Story & Clark chapel organ by the side of the road which he quickly purchased for $10 and dragged back to the garage before the rain ruined it! They currently reside in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, where Dr. Knowles is the curator of the fledgling C. Ernest Kemp Mineral Resources Museum at LSSU. They enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren, most of whom live nearby.
