Happy 90th birthday, Mr. Bierley!

Today is the 90th birthday of the world's greatest expert on all things Sousa - Paul Edmund Bierley.

I have had the opportunity to talk with Paul a few times over the past couple of years, and he has shown great interest in my research on Sousaphone history. I am deeply grateful for all that he has done to preserve and promote the history of Sousa and his Band - especially through the book shown at the left.

Click here for more information about Paul, from the Sousa Archives website, and click here for a brief video clip of him sharing recently about Sousa.

Happy 90th birthday, Mr. Bierley!
