Notes
Victor ledgers: "For the Hall of Religion at Century of Progress Exposition [World's Fair]"; "Messrs. E. W. Young and John Korenian, present"; "Shop order 89089."
Ledgers: "Ballyhoo record to be played from Hall of Religion." The recording is believed to relate the story of a hand-carved depiction of the Last Supper displayed in the Exposition’s Hall of Religion. Information in the Illinois Digital Archives states that the carving was made in the 18th century by Ivan Khan Beyian of Armenia, in honor of his mother. The carving was passed down through the family until it was stolen in 1901. John Korenian, a descendant, immigrated to the United States in 1911 and recovered the heirloom in 1929.
Victor ledgers indicate that the master recording was "personal"; it was made on commission or not intended for release.
