I have a patron that is trying to track down recordings of and
information on the Three Vagrants, a group (accordion, guitar, clarinet)
that recorded for Victor and Edison in the teens and 20s. His
grandparents were in the group and he is on sabbatical and is beginning
some research on the group.
We tracked down the Edison discs fairly easily, but the Victors (and HMV
pressings) are pretty elusive. If anybody can help him locate these in
private or institutional collections, he'd like to obtain copies.
Here's the Victors we've identified, followed by HMV face numbers:
69341 (7-58022, 7-58023)
69402 (7-58024, 7-58025)
69403 (7-58026, 7-58027)
73156 (7-58028, 7-58029)
72212 (7-58030, 7-58031)
72378 (7-58032, 7-58033) (Syracuse has the Victor)
73531 (7-58043) (LC has the Victor)
He'd also like to find any printed documentation (he has a scrapbook
already) but if anybody has leads on printed materials, he'd appreciate
