Dwight Hamilton Baldwin
Birth: Sep. 15, 1821
Erie County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 23, 1899
Walnut Hills (Hamilton County)
Hamilton County

Entrepreneur. Founder of the Baldwin Piano Company. Born in Erie County, Pennsylvania, he moved to Ohio to attend the Oberlin College in Lorain County. Baldwin left before graduating to become a traveling music teacher. He married Emerine Summers Baldwin and relocated to the Cincinnati area in the 1850's when she accepted a teaching job at Lane Seminary in Walnut Hills. In 1862, Baldwin established the Baldwin Piano Company and sold pianos and organs. His bookkeeper, Lucien Wulsin, joined the company in 1866 and became a partner to Baldwin in 1873. Along with inventor, John W. Macy, they created the first Baldwin Piano in 1891 and the grand piano in 1895. A devote Presbyterian, he left his estate at Kemper Lane on the grounds of Lane Seminary to the church after he died at his residence. The Baldwin Company went on to become the largest manufacturer of keyboard instruments in the United States. (bio by: K Guy)
