Seek Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Historian
By Matthew Caulfield

The city of Williamsport in Pennsylvania must hold some sort of magic
for the mechanical music field, because over the years my attention has
been drawn several times to that city.  First it was the Vandersloot
Music Publishing Company, later it was the famous Repasz Band and the
controversy over who actually composed the band's signature march, most
lately it was an article about a Williamsport furniture dealer who owns
a unique player reed organ.

I was in contact a few years ago with a lady who plays in Williamsport's
Repasz Band, but I have lost her email address.  It would be useful to
be able to communicate today with someone in the Williamsport area in
the hope of getting some answers to one or another of these other
