Richard Boynton has many fond memories of the music industry. His grandfather was once the owner of CG Conn Musical Instruments in Elkhart, Indiana. In fact, Mr. Greenleaf purchased the company from Col. Conn in 1915 and developed many of the practices that allowed the company to endure the Great Depression, participate in building for the war effort in the 1940s and help strengthen music educational programs after the war! Richard proudly worked in the company from the mid 1950s until 1972, when he formed a musical instrument transport business. While at Conn, Richard worked and later managed many departments and still recalls fondly the great people of Conn who were so much a part of the company's success.
