Wurlitzer Band Organ Data on the COAA Website
By Matthew Caulfield

With reference to Wally Venable's announcement in the 16.05.23 MMD
that the Doyle Lane Wurlitzer Pipe Scale Book is now posted on the
COAA website along with my Wurlitzer 125, 150, and 180 roll catalogs,
I am shocked to find that there is no mention of my Wurlitzer 165 roll
catalog being there, and I was told months ago that it is.  But where?
I could find no mention of it or any link to it.

While I say the 125 roll catalog is mine, it really is the work of
Mike Grant, of Columbia City, Indiana, so credit where credit is due.
Even the 165 catalog, the magnum opus of the group, has its roots in
the seminal research done in the 1960's by Californian Gary Watkins,
who became fascinated by the Wurlitzer band organs owned by Ross R.
Davis at Griffith Park and Lincoln Park in Los Angeles.  I merely
carried on Gary's work after he burned out, eventually converting it
from paper to on-line format, when distributing print copies and updates
got too burdensome and cumbersome.
