Isn’t he the guy who invented the Waring blender? Well not really but more about that in a minute –
Waring hailed from Pennsylvania and was actually a popular bandleader among other things. From his college days, he was forming musical groups and performing wherever he could. He became quite successful and was a top act in the 1920s.
His career extended into recorded albums – music in film scores, radio, TV and eventually even music publishing.
Waring owned a resort hotel on the East coast and thanks to an interest he had in cartooning hosted a convention of the National Cartoonist Society. Among his effects were a great number of cartoon sketches and drawings.
Ever the entrepreneur he really did promote and finance the development of the Waring blender. He lived in the Coachella Valley in the 1980s and was instrumental in helping raise funds for the McCallum Theatre.
Last but certainly not least, he was married to a woman named Virginia who had a career as a Steinway Piano artist. To this day a Piano competition bearing her name still happens in the Desert, every year.
Talk about accomplished life! Next time you drive down Fred Waring Drive in Palm Desert you will have much to think about.
