Notes for Gottlieb Mayer
“At the age of 5 dad had loads of bricks fall on him near a building site. His skull was crushed and he lost his leg. A suit followed from which he got a settlement—that went to his piano education which made him a musician and he was a good one, so he could earn a living.”
-- Ethel Mayer Vogt in a May 1979 letter to her daughter Marcia
