Hall of Fame – 1984
Paul Schroeder and the Milwaukee Concertina Club are almost synonymous. In 1929, Paul joined the Milwaukee Concertina Club and immediately began to work for the good of the concertina.
Schroeder called musicians to practice once a week at his home. His wife prepared refreshments. He did this so that a monthly dance could be held at Kasmouth Hall, in West Allis Wisconsin.
For 50 years, in sickness and in health, Paul continued to try to keep his love for the concertina from extinction. He arranged the music, solicited new members and conducted the club from the bedside when necessary.
