Wanamaker, John

Born: July 11, 1838, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Vocations: Merchant, Religious Leader, Postmaster General

 

Geographic Connection to Pennsylvania: Philadelphia, Philadelphia County

 

Abstract: John Wanamaker was born on July 11, 1838,

in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the age of 23, he

opened his first clothing store, and he went on to start

his own line of retail shops, known as Wanamaker’s.

He is considered the father of modern advertising and

was also a United States Postmaster General from

1889 to 1893. He was also the first full time paid secretary

for the YMCA from 1858 to 1861. In 1859, he founded

the Bethany Sunday School in Philadelphia, which became

the largest Sunday School in the country at the time.

Wanamaker is well known for his famous words on

advertising: “Half the money I spend on advertising is

wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.”

Wanamaker died on December 12, 1922,

in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Culture

 

World’s largest working pipe organ is in … Macy’s

 

Before there was Muzak, there was the Wanamaker.

 

Newly restored, it restores the shopper’s mood.

 

By By Mary Beth McCauley, Correspondent

“When you see the Wanamaker organ soar

heavenward, you want to look around for

the rest of the cathedral. When its sound

makes pillars tremble, you know it speaks

for the powers above. But where stained

glass windows should be – there is ladies

apparel. In the would-be pews, people are

trying on boots. And that scent wafting

through the air is not votive candles,

it’s Chanel No. 5.

 

Wait. This is no church. This is … Macy’s?”

 

Here, occupying prime retail space, there

are nearly 30,000 organ pipes in chambers

towering up through seven floors, making

the Wanamaker the largest operating pipe

organ in the world. For precious square

footage to be given over thus is rare.

Even modest organs tend to be located not

in stores but in churches, private homes,

or municipal buildings; built by the

Los Angeles Art Organ Company,

the Wanamaker is one of only two known

department-store organs in the world.”

 

.

“Last month when the Philadelphia Orchestra

visited for a joint Saturday evening benefit

concert, part of a Macy’s 150-year anniversary

 program, the pristine organ showed her stuff.

Together, the organ and orchestra, with

Grand Court organist Peter Richard Conte at

the console, performed Joseph Jongen’s

“Symphonie Concertante,” an organ-orchestra

piece written for the Wanamaker organ back in

1926 but never played on the instrument for

which it was commissioned. The orchestra’s

Rossen Milanov, who conducted, saw the concert

as “a once-in-a-lifetime chance,” the first time the

orchestra and organ played together since the days

when the great conductor Leopold Stokowski would

bring his orchestra to Wanamaker’s in the 1920s.”
