Frederick William Gaisberg
Profile:
American-born musician, recording engineer and one of the earliest classical music producers for the gramophone (1 January 1873 – 2 September 1951).

Fred Gaisberg is known to have begun his career as a piano accompanist for Columbia in Washington in the early 1890's.
