THE MICHIGAN DAILY FRIDAY, JA
Once Played Here
There are four musical instruments
in the Stearns collection in Hill au-
ditorium which are connected with the
early history of Ann Arbor.
The first is a violin made of wood
taken from a table used by the first
settler in Ann Arbor. It was con-
structed by N. W. House, a direct des-
cendant and a reputable Ohio violin
maker who presented it to the Uni-
versity. It is number 1284 in case
XIII. A bit of the leg is placed in
case XVI, number 1431.
Next in chronological sequence is a
German silver E-fiat cornet belonging
to C. Jacob Gwinner who organized
the first band and orchestra in Ann
Arbor. A part of the membership of
this band formed the nucleus of Port-
er's Zouave band which took part in
the Civil war. The striking pecular-
ity of this cornet is its -form, which,
although a graceful variant of the "bell
over shoulder" type, must have been
rather ineffective as the tone instead
of being directed either forward as in
modern cornets or backward, was di-
rected upward. This cornet is num-
bered 856-A, case VIII, and was pre-
sented by Jacob Gwinner's son, Rob-
ert Gwinner, and his grandson, Robert
Dieterle, '18. A picture including pho-
tographs of the members of the band
show several cornets of this form.
Two instruments presented by Irv-
ing K. Pond are of especial interest
to Michigan alumni. The first is a
snare drum which was beaten by the
donor in the first University orchestra.
It is number 388-A, case V. The sec-
ond instrument is a horn known as
bered 336-A, case XV.
