In Reply to: E.L. DEFORD ELKHART & THE MYSTERY FLUTE by Cheryl Alexander of 471

Emerson Deford was a shoemaker where he formed his longstanding reputation as an extremely hard worker. He joined the Armstrong Company working with Jack Moore in producing the 'Heritage' line of instruments. He is responsible for creating both Deford and Emerson student flutes, both of which companies he sold. (The latter was sold to the Selmer Company, who also bought the French flute makers Barbier). After losing a finger in a press, he is very safety conscious in his workshops.
