I'm coming out of lurkdom to see if anyone can help. I've just started teaching at Seattle Pacific University, and I've discovered a flute collection in a cupboard. The instruments were donated by James A. Buck between approx. 1974-77, but no one seems to remember any details. Has anyone heard of a flute collector or flutist named James Buck? He passed away some time in about 1995. Last known residence was Tuscon, AZ.
Very little in playable condition. Stamps on flutes include "C. Gerock/London," "Firthpond & Co./N-York," "Camp/London," "Camp/from/Rudall & Rose/London," "Martin Fres/A/Paris," "MiDaille D'Or/Ga," "Gautrot Aine/Brevette/A Paris," "Geo.Cloos," and of course several "Nach Meyer."
Any comments? Suggestions on what to DO with the collection?
