As part of the scanning I've been doing of my Wisconsin collection 
since January, I just did the above 78.

"Imprimatur: MOYSES E. KILEY, Archeipiscorpus Milwaukinesis, Milwakiae, die 
2 Julii, 1946."

      Can anyone translate this?  Is this the recording date, the release 
date, or something else?  The 78 and its jacket have no other date on 
them.  The jacket is not cardboard, but a heavy paper sleeve with a back 
flap that was probably originally tucked in and not glued.  There is no 
sign that the flap was originally outside and sealed with tape.

Oriole Records Corporation, 2134 S. Wabash Ave., Chicago 17, IL
    St. Joseph Convent Choir recorded at Alverno College, Milwaukee, WI, 
with narration on side 1 by Jim Ameche
    Queen of Our Country / Our Lady of the Rosary
    110-A / 110-B, E1-QB-13152 / E1-QB-13153

      A Google search for "Oriole Records Corporation" results only in an 
ad on p. 36 of the Google book for the 9-23-1950, Vol. 62, No. 38 issue of 
"The Billboard".  That's where I found its street address.

    However, an "Oriole Records" search finds Wikipedia pages for labels in 
the US and in the UK, but not the one in Chicago.  The "Jack Staulcup 
Orchestra" page mentions "Oriole Records in Chicago", but Wikipedia has no 
page for it.  What were the founded and closed dates for this third label 
with the same name.

      I have been told that every 78 that ever existed has been documented 
somewhere on-line and/or in print.  I can't find it on the Web.  Where in 
print is the discography that lists this 78, and hopefully every other 
recording ever made at Alverno College?  The only other one I have is 
Mag-Na-Craft M80P-9177/8, "Organ Noel", an undated LP by Sister M. 
Theophane, O.S.F., Director of Music at Alverno.

PS: A work in progress, neither of these titles are installed on my site yet.
