BAGO History

Trivia Answer for April 2020:

In renaming the Massachusetts Chapter, all three names were considered:

  • The Greater Boston Chapter
  • The Hub Chapter
  • The Boston Chapter

The name “Boston Chapter was chosen as “it was unlikely that there will ever be a need of ameding it as the new title pretty accurately decribes the area it serves.” – H. Winthrop Martin, A History of the American Guild of Organists in Boston Massachusetts 1905-1954
