Jerome Murphy III

Jerome Murphy III, the vice president of M. Steinert & Son’s piano dealer in Boston, provided insightful stories on the rich history of Steinert’s musical history. Jerome told of Morris Steinert’s first store, which opened a few years after he emigrated from Bavaria to Savannah in the 1860s. During the Civil War he moved north and soon opened Steinert Hall, which Jerome proudly noted is the location of his office. Steinert hired Jerome Murphy I as a bookkeeper in 1897 and the rich history of the Murphy family has been the driving force ever since.
