Oral History Information
Craig Anderson is the General Manager for Allied Supply in Elkhorn, WI. Allied is the largest supplier of parts, tools and cases to the band instrument repair business and has been a cornerstone for the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (NAPBIRT), which was formed in 1976. Craig is keenly interested in furthering band instrument repair. Whether it be providing parts and tools or seeing that technicians get and are provided with the best education possible, Craig is involved. He takes great pride in preserving the history of band instrument manufacturing. As a supporter of the NAMM Oral History program he has been instrumental in providing background histories, persons to interview and contact information. Craig’s own interview was conducted, fittingly, at the NAPBIRT annual convention in 2012.
