Oral History Information
Clem Frak worked for King Musical Instruments for 35 years! As vice president of sales, Clem was well known by many of the veteran dealers for his integrity. Retailer Bob Menchey stated, “Clem’s word was all I ever needed. If he said he could get the product to us in time, it would arrive – no question.” Clem worked with many of the top designers in the business during his time at King, along with famous players such as Harry James. When Clem began working for the company it was known as H. N. White and Company, but due to the strong popularity of their King band instrument line, the company name was changed.
