The Billboard Clipping

Above: The Billboard magazine ad from January 25, 1947. The St. Louis Four became The Caldwells by the summer of 1947. Note the songs listed as "their original compostions." The Caldwells, who consisted of Alex Caldwell (lead baritone), Helen Stewart (lead), Oleatha Grangel (tenor), and John Dennis (bass/baritone), were a self-contained singing/instrumental group. Their first release was on Philadelphia's Algene label in mid-1947.
