Biography

John was the hus­band of Em­i­ly Zim­mer­man.

At one time he was a col­lege mu­sic di­rect­or (prob­abl­y in Ohio). Some re­cords re­fer to him as Pro­fess­or Kin­sey.

He moved from Ohio to La­fay­ette, In­di­a­na, around 1885. When he re­tired from the Echo Mu­sic Com­pa­ny around 1903, he was liv­ing in Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois.

He turned the com­pa­ny ov­er to his son Carl, and op­ened a mu­sic store in Fort Wayne, In­di­a­na. That ven­ture was short lived, and he soon closed it due to fail­ing health.
