My father Robert Hunter, has a long history with fond memories of the Stanley Theater. At age fifteen in 1935, he took organ lessons form George Davis. That organ, a Wurlitzer pipe organ, is now located locally at Proctor high school. The Stanley inspired him to continue his musical education. He attended Syracuse University and graduated with a B.A. in Music. In the 60's and 70's he tuned the piano for such legends as Artur Rubenstein, Three Dog Night and many other concerts. Today, My Father is 87 and still lives in the Utica area.
Long Live the Stanley!
