J.J. Keeler in Leipzig, circa 1932

Thanks to fellow organist Mark Bell, who emailed the above photo of our teacher, J.J. Keeler. The photo was taken during the period 1931-1933, while studying with Karl Straube in Leipzig. Keeler went to Leipzig at age 18, following graduation from high school. Thank you for teaching me how to practice! We miss you.
