Digitizing a Will in 1937 - Glen Gray, Casa Loma Orchestra

Photo Details

Glen Gray was the leader of the popular band, the Casa Loma orchestra (1927 to 1963). So it was only natural that he would use new recording technology to make his will. He's shown making the recording of his will on a steel record "so his in-laws can't break the will."

With him are Jim Moran, recorder and witness and H.L. McCormick, attorney and witness.

Technology has always been fun!
