Arthur Hall

(May 12th 1888 - March ? 1951)

Adolph J. Hahl was born in New York City during the Spring of 1888. He began a singing career and in 1912 made his recording debut as a member of the "Manhattan Quartet" with whom he continued to work until 1929. During World War I the popular vocalist changed his name to Arthur Hall in response to the unpopularity of all things German. Arthur went on to appear as a featured vocalist on a vast array of record labels including Banner, Domino, Regal, Oriole, Emerson, Grey Gull, Madison, Supreme, Radiex, Paramount, Puritan, Broadway, Puretone, Pathé, Actuelle, Perfect, Gennett, and Edison; sometimes under various pseudonyms. In 1924 he began singing duets with tenor vocalist John Ryan which became the start of a lengthy series of records billed as "Hall & Ryan" in addition to some other names such as "The Harmony Brothers". Fading from the spotlight during the 1930's Arthur Hall died in New York in 1951.
