  • Biography

    Arthur Pryor was born in 1870 in St. Joseph, Missouri, and died in 1942 in Long Beach, California. In 1892,John Philip Sousa hired Pryor as his solo trombonist, and thereafter pro- moted him to assistant conductor (1894-1903). Pryor formed his own band in 1903, and toured extensively until 1909. Taking advantage of the new technology, Pryor made numerous recordings (over 1000!) and engaged upon a series of com- 1 mercial radio broadcasts. He was a charter member of ASCAP and the American Bandmasters Association. Of his more than 300 compositions, his output includes ragtime, novelty tunes, and operettas.
