The program and roster for an all-women's church band, some twenty musicians in all, with the line-up itself worthy of reading as a sort of found poetry--on violin we have Mrs. Lethal Thompson, while Mrs. Lagretta Heiman plies the bass viol as Miss Nayne Reed is no doubt similarly sonorous upon the bass horn, and the three-woman trombone section and the two "saxaphone" players thrum gently on the banks of the Wabash. Online genealogical resources (and the inclusion of "On the Banks of the Wabash" in the program) suggest an Attica, Indiana band in Fountain county.
