FROM THE ARCHIVES: "Eager Pupils Swamp School's Musical Staff"

This entry highlights George Allan Borgman's time in the 1950s as a music teacher. In this article, "Eager Pupils Swamp School's Musical Staff," from the September 20, 1956 edition of the Nevada State Journal based out of Reno. George, named as Allan, is mentioned suggesting that there just weren't enough instruments to go around for all the students who wanted to join the Lovelock Elementary School band.
In his early music career George taught music and band in a few states. He worked as music director in Lovelock for a couple of years. It was in Lovelock that he met his future wife Janet Ferroli, an elementary school teacher from New England.
