In Bluffton during an earlier pandemic

Bluffton College Choral Society officers in 1917-18 - during an earlier pandemic.

Top from left, Paul Adams (Adam Bridge carries his name), Pearl Bogart (for many years a Bluffton piano teacher), Ruth Ringelman and C.D. Amstutz.

Front from left, Noah Burkhalter, Cleora Basinger and G.A. "Dad" Lehman.

The Choral Society was responsible for the financial end of the College Music and High School Lecture Course. For "the reasonable sum" of $2 Bluffton heard two fine lectures and six musical numbers including a performance by the then-world famous woman pianist Ethel Leginska, and the Tollefsen Trio.
