Purdue Glee Club - Albert P. Stewart, Conductor - RCA Special Publication (1950s?)

Being married to a Boilermaker, I'm pretty adept at spotting Purdue items with their various logos but these things are few and far between 'round our neck o' the woods.

In the last few days, I have been straightening up the garage a bit in preparation for the hurricane. Imagine my surprise when I found this 78 as I was stacking crates of records.

I couldn't find any recording dates for these sides but I did find the history of Purdue's Musical Organizations.

This record was apparently a gift of some sort (intended for whom?) from Miles Laboratories, Inc., which was based out of Elkhart, Indiana and Bauer & Black, which may have been in Chicago at the time.

If anyone has any information related to this record, please feel free to comment below.


  1. My Grandfather was the Director, Al Stewart. I will see what I can find out about the recording.

  2. Thank you for any information you might be able to provide!

  3. he was my grandpa too : ) How are both of us coming across this within a few days of each other?
