dc.description.abstractIn his October 2, 1986 interview, Richard Jerome spoke with Richard Cole and recalled his time working for and apprenticing under Verne Q. Powell, making piccolos and flutes at Powell’s workshop in Port Chester, New York. Jerome described working for Powell, his relationship with the flute maker, and the environment of the workshop. He also provided details on the flute making process and the difference between Powell flutes with other competitors like Haynes and Schwelm. In his October 3, 1986 session, he once again detailed his time working alongside Verne Q. Powell and eventually as a partner of Powell Flutes in Boston, Massachusetts. Jerome described the process of soldering together flutes and the potential challenges that came along with it, along with the progression of Mr. Powell’s involvement in the company to the four managers in 1961. This interview was conducted for inclusion into the Powell Flutes Oral History Project of the UW-Madison Archives & Records Management oral history collection.en_US
