Title from a 1905 edition of Harmony Hints

Images and information from Catalogs, Brochures and Advertisements

1904 - 2008

My original intent with this section of the website was to post scans of complete copies of Holton Catalogs. This really is not feasible, especially as my main goal is to get as much information posted before ITEC 2014 begins on May 18. In addition, a better method for posting images would be to group images by subjects - such as a page for information about tubas, another for euphoniums, etc. This will allow an easier approach for researchers in the future. However, this style will take longer to assemble. 

This section of the website will start on one page, and I will move items to subcategories as pages grow and time permits. Another problem is going to be image size . . . this could be the slowest page to load on the website. 

In the mid-20th century, the Chicago Symphony Brass Ensemble endorsed a line of Professional Holton Instruments.
