History: Home of Charles Wakefeld Cadman, composer and musician of renown, well known both here and abroad: born at Johnstown, Pennsylvania, in 1881: coming from musically inclined ancestry his talent was soon apparent and he obtained early training in Pittsburgh, later studying with Luigi Von Kunits and others: since 1910 his compositions have been numerous and extraordinarily popular in every civilized country: besides prolific song and choral composing he has published pieces for violin, piano, and organ. C. W. Cadman has made extensive research on American Indian folksong and is considered an authority: his “Shanewis” was the first American grand opera to play two seasons at the Metropolitan Opera House: he was music critic for Pittsburgh “Dispatch” 1908-1911, and wrote for musical publications: came to Los Angeles in 1916, and was a member of the Los Angeles Athletic, Uplifters, and Kiwanis clubs, Masons, Sons of the Revolution, Hollywood Lions Club, and many musical societies. Formerly resided at 2220 Canyon Drive, Hollywood. (Source: Who’s Who in Los Angeles County. 19321933. P. 77.)
