Bohm Family

The Bohm family provided musical entertainment in the early 20th century. Their saxophone quartet was well-known throughout the state. Pictured here are Albert (1887-1960), Gustav (1897-1967), Mayta (1894-1950), and George (1890-1951). Gustav played with the John Philip Sousa band during World War I, and directed the Albion City Band. George also directed the City Band, and operated the Bohm Theatre in downtown Albion, assisted by his brother Albert.
