Note on Husband: Charles CHASE

A poet as well as an expert on folk instruments, Chase died of a

stroke May 21 at the Mountain View Alzheimer's Center in Claremont,

according to his daughter, Ellen Chase.

Chase allowed customers to play all the instruments in the center: the

antique Tibetan temple horns, American banjos, Polynesian conch shells

and African tongue drums as well as new guitars, banjos and drums.

Chase was a kindred spirit of folk singers such as Arlo Guthrie and

Pete Seeger, who mixed social causes with music. Chase looked a bit

like a folk singer himself with his full beard -- a soft, gray mist

that covered his collar in his later years.
