Main Entry: Development Office
Volume: Three Files
Paul C. Koenig
came to GMA in 1947 as Bandmaster and Choral Director in the Music Department.
He began to rebuild the band which, according to newspaper clippings, had
atrophied during World War II. With some new facilities the band
experienced growth and participated in a number of festivals and parades.
Koenig left GMA in 1950.
Scope and Content:
consists of one hand-written letter, one photocopy program, three newspaper
clippings, and four black-and-white photographs. The letter, dated
11/13/92, was written by Paul Koenig and explains his tenure at GMA and
how the Development Office came to possess the papers. Newspaper
clippings from the 1947 and 1949 student newspaper Gamilicad and from a
1950 local paper relate activities of the band, including a picture of
the band and Koenig marching in the 1949 Southeastern World’s Fair Parade
in Atlanta. Four photographs, all 8”x10” with no dates, include Koenig
and the Senior Glee Club including the Junior College, Boys Octet, and
the Junior School Chorus. Also included is a two-page photocopy program
of “The 3rd Annual Strength and Variety Show,” produced by Maj. William
A. Curry (father of Georgia Tech football coach Bill Curry), music
provided by Capt. Paul Koenig and the GMA Special Circus Band.
