Ed Cranley

Ed Cranley was surrounded by his devoted family when he was interviewed in July 2005. He spoke with pride of his role in expanding the Willis Music Company and the fact that his son now runs the business. He also told of his impressive career as a baseball pitcher, but perhaps took the greatest pride in speaking of the growth of the music-publishing segment of the business, which included a long partnership with Edna Mae Burnam who wrote several successful method books for Willis Music.  His passion of the music business was clear in each story that he told.
