Content and context

The Widor Society was inaugurated in October 1936 with Robert Affleck, Tom A. Greeves and D.J. Behrens as officers. The object was 'to promote the knowledge and appreciation of the works of the composer Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (1844-1937), and to give publicity to his works, through the gramophone and by any other means.' Widor was a French organist and composer.
