Gaylord Quartet

Gaylord Quartet, circa 1950

The Gaylord Quartet was active in the 1940s and 1950s in Toledo, OH.

The only member identified in the photo here is Marvin Stimpfle (lower center). Albert Gause is likely another member shown. The photo is from about the same time as the 1951 BHS (then SPEBSQSA) International Quartet Contest which was held in Toledo that year. It is unknown if they competed in the competition.

Marvin passed in 1971 [1], and Albert in 1995 [2].
