Herbert L. Clarke

Herbert Lincoln Clarke (1867 - 1945) was a legend
in his own time. He is easily the best known
cornetist of all times. From his meager beginnings
of practicing on an old Ophicleide and joining the
Queen's Own Rifle Regimental Band in Toronto just
so he could have a cornet (a Courtois) he could
call his own to practice, one would never suspect
such a career lay ahead of him.
