Collection Historical Note

Edmund A. Wall, father of both Edmund C. and Charles A. Wall, was a member of the Sousa band for only the 1910 tour and the 1911 World Tour. Both he and his sons played Bb Clarinet for the band, but at different times. Charles A. Wall joined the band during the 1927 tour and played again with the group in 1929 and on a recording from 1930. Edmund C. Wall joined the band in 1925 and played with the group until 1931. In addition, Edmund C. Wall became an active clarinettist in New York joining the New York Ballet Orchestra, the Metropolitan Orchestra, the Goldman Band, the Pryor Band, and several New York theatre companies.

Biographical Note

Edmund A. Wall was a clarinetist for the Sousa Band during the 1910-1911 world tour. While little is known about him, both of his sons, Charles A. Wall (1899-1958) and Edmund C. Wall (1895-1985), also played as clarinetists for the Sousa Band between 1925 and 1931.
