Israelite House of David - Inspiration and Genius
"Everybody compliments us on the pretty uniforms we have and say the one who designed
them had good Taste. We tell them that the leader of our colony designed them."
Horace Hannaford, on the road in Cleveland, Ohio, 1920
While this ethic motivated the rank and file members it also raised the leadership of the little colony to inspiration and genius. Chief among these inspired leaders was Benjamin himself who encourage and promoted the development of the House of David bands.
