One of my clients was a member of the Cornell University Glee Club from 1936 to 1938. His recollections of the Glee Club from those years are very interesting, and he has two official photos of the Club. The video is posted on Youtube, and we purposely panned across each photo to show every member up close. He tells me that Austin Kiplinger is in one of those photos-- he pointed him out, but I don't remember. Anyway, perhaps your father or grandfather (uncle? ..not aunt of course) is in one of the photos and you can find him.
Here is the link to the YouTube video. If you want a .jpg copy of the photo, I can send it via email, so contact me (Judy Wagner).
