A Glimpse at a 1935 Trip to New York (Part 1)

Starting with today's post, we will take a journey through the journal scrapbook of Ms. O'Brien's trip to New York City in June of 1935 for the A.G.O. (American Guild of Organists) Convention.  I ran across this journal of hers on a recent trip to Canton Trade Days in Canton, TX.  I felt bad that her family lost this great experience of a family member's and thought the best thing I could do was to share the trip with you all.

So, for the next week or more, I'll be featuring a page or two each day of her trip and maybe a little bit of history that I can cross reference to her trip.  I hope you enjoy it.  Today will just be the introduction and hopefully a chance to grab your attention.

Wow, what a great find. It obviously ended up in the right hands. I can't wait to see more. I wonder if the American Guild of Organists is still active?

It's going to be a fun feature on the site for sure. The author really documented her trip well with programs, postcards, clippings, etc. And it appears that the organization (A.G.O.) is still active.
