GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 20 Jul 21

Irving Prosky, last of the (two) Stinson Trading Company founding fathers otoh:

Irving Prosky Withdraws From Stinson Trading Co.
NEW YORK, Dec. 21. Irving Proskey [sic] has withdrawn from the partnership in Stinson Trading Company, distributors of Stinson and Asch-Stinson records, because of illness, and the entire business is now in the hands of Herbert Harris.

Under altered ownership basis, company will continue the production and distribution of disks, with an output minimum of 26 new albums and 100 new single records in addition to the present Stinson catalog during 1947.
[Billboard, 28 Dec 1946, p.90]

Recap: Stinson Trading Co. started up a full six years before the 1939 N.Y. Fair - without Herbert Harris and/or Soviet cutouts. The Stinson Records brand name, still to come, will be created by Harris (and Noel Meadow no doubt) without Irving Prosky.
