Biographie / Histoire administrative
Portrait photographer, George J. Kossuth, was born in Clifton, West Virginia, on 12 April 1886. From 1899 to 1909, he worked in the studio of J.E. Giffin in Wheeling, West Virginia. He then established his own studio, the Kossuth Studio, also in Wheeling.
George J. Kossuth died in 1960. Elias Goldensky, was born in Russia in 1868. He immigrated to Philadelphia in 1891, at the age of 23, along with his family.
He worked with photographers William J. Kuebler and Frederick Gutekunst. He opened his own studio in 1895 in Philadelphia.
Elias Goldensky died in 1943. Violin virtuoso Kathleen Parlow was born in Calgary in 1890. As a child she studied in San Francisco and in St. Petersburg, giving her first recital at the age of six. By the age of 15, she was performing for the British Royal Family. She made her professional debut in 1907 in Berlin and thereafter toured internationally, based initially in Europe and then in the United States.
In 1941 she moved to Toronto to teach at the Toronto Conservatory of Music, and immediately assumed a leading position in the community as an active chamber musician and as a soloist with ensembles such as the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. She performed with some of the most prominent Canadian artists of her time, including the pianists Sir Ernest MacMillan and Mario Bernardi and the cellist Zara Nelsova. The renowned Parlow String Quartet, which was active from 1943 to 1958, acquired an international reputation.
