100 Years Ago Today

A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Recorded January 30, 1915


Charles Crawford Gorst was born in 1885 in Nebraska. He has made the study of birds and their songs his life work. He has lived in the open, analyzing and recording the music of birds – the oldest music known to man. Mr. Gorst has listened to birds until, with no other teacher, he learned to sing their songs so perfectly that the little songsters would answer and fly to him.

On January 30, 1915 Charles Gorst was in the Victor Record Company studios in Camden, New Jersey and recorded these bird calls.

Songs and calls of our native birds – Kentucky cardinal or redbird ; Oven-bird ; Red-eyed vireo ; Baltimore oriole ; Mourning dove ; Western meadow lark
