I have started a new page on the Lives of the Pipers Website, a list or directory of pipemakers in North America before 1950.

At present there are listings for nine pipemakers. I'll add more as time permits. I'll post to this topic from time to time to let you know when new listings are available.

Michael Anderson 1865-1947
James E. Brennan 1879-1944
Patrick A. "Patsy" Brown 1872-1957
James Cahill c. 1847-1908
James Carbray 1860-1933
Michael Carney c. 1872-1938
Michael Carolan 1820?-1897?
Conner & Boyle active before 1925

This is a work in progress. And I am certainly open to new information about these men and the instruments they made.

Matthew Corcoran circa 1800-1885
James Early 1846-1914
Michael Egan d. circa 1860
Mr. Green active 20th century

This is a work in progress. I am certainly open to new information about these men and the instruments they made.
