George Baggish Memorial Quartet is the Barbershop Harmony Society's 1986 International Seniors Quartet Champion, the first year the championship was awarded. Tom Potenza, bass of Take Four, was their coach. Steve Delehanty provided arrangements for the quartet for the inaugural International Seniors Quartet competition. Steve had sang tenor for the Note Wits, a comedy quartet Fred Steinkamp also sang with.

The quartet edged out Four Old Guys Singing (2nd) and Close Harmony Tradition (3rd) for the championship.

Fred Steinkamp passed away on March 13, 1986, shortly after winning the seniors quartet. Fred had sang for 17 years in the Westchester Country Golden Chordsmen, serving as president, chorus director, membership vice president, baritone section leader, music composer and arranger, stage presence coach, show writer and director, show lead performer, bulletin editor and even mailing list manager.[1]
