Great Composer Quiz – May 22, 2020
This time, it’s a Quiz about a Great Composer’s father. This Great Composer’s father was an inventor. Most of his inventing work focused on the automobile, but his biggest project was an amusement ride, a loop-the-loop designed for circuses and auto shows, called “The Whirlwind of Death.” It was displayed by Barnum and Bailey’s Circus and appeared destined for success when a fatal accident occurred on The Whirlwind of Death. Ironically, it was an automobile that most contributed to the inventor’s son’s death many years later. So who was this son of a failed inventor, this Great Composer?
