Re: Artie Whetsel (Whetsol)
In Response To: Re: Artie Whetsel (Whetsol) ()

Hi Art and K

In his autobiography: "Music Is My Mistress", Duke Ellington mentioned Arthur Whetsel being the son of a Seventh-Day Adventist minister. Unfortunately it is not sure if Ellington meant Artie's biological father or his stepfather named Schiefe.
If Whetsel was a minister the move from Ohio to Florida could have had something to do with this church. Sounds logical, me think.
