Charles Strothkamp played clarinet in the Sousa Band between 1926 and 1932, and as he travelled with the ensemble his camera meticulously documented the off-stage life of his music colleagues, including Mr. and Mrs. Sousa, and the many different communities and theaters the band played throughout its 1926-1930 American tours. This photographic exhibition explores the humorous and everyday exploits of Charles Strothkamp as a member of the Sousa Band, and also highlights some of the Strothkamp family’s cross-country travels at the beginning of America’s Great Depression when Charles wasn’t on tour with the band.
