I am a family member. My Great great grandmother was Gus's sister. Uncle Gus headed back up the Eire Canal back to NY to make his fortune. He had no children. A true lover of music, his legacy to the school was a natural. He helped the Met through hard times too. His wife was a big benefactor to children's hospital causes. I would love to find more bio info. Any history students do a dissertation on him? I knew my grandfather who knew gus when he was young. Wish I had asked more questions then.
