Front and center in the St. Louis People’s Chorus, circa 1950

St. Louis People's Chorus, approx. 1950, captured by professional photographer Al Redler

Another photo dated 1950 was in the same pile as this one from Doris’s years in St. Louis. An accompanying note suggests that the fellow on the right in the rear was comedian Jan Murray.  I believe that Irwin Silber was the guitarist on the left of the photo. He was one of the editors of People’s Songs in the late 1940s and became editor of Sing Out! magazine in 1950. If anyone can identify others in the photo that’d be great – I think the blacklist is gone. I have an idea one of the other fellows may be Waldemar Hille.
