Music--United States


A 45 RPM vinyl record single of the song, "Hello Frisco!," recorded by Alice Green and Edward Hamilton for the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1915. The song was written by Gene Buck and Louis A. Hirsch.

A notable "machinist" for the Victor Talking Machine Company was Irick Ritezendollar (1898-1992). Born on January 1, 1898, in Chatsworth, New Jersey, Ritzendollar enlisted in the United States Army on September 5, 1918. His served for slightly more than three months before being discharged on December 14, 1918. Unlike his siblings, Ritzendollar stayed out of the spotlight. He married Ella S. Ritzendollar sometime between 1922 and 1923. By 1940, he was working as a pump man for Works Progress Administration (WPA) Road Construction. At some point, Ritzendollar moved to Wauchula, Florida, and later relocated to Lakeland, Florida. Irick Ritzendollar passed away on September 14, 1992, at the age of ninety-three. He is buried at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
