I have a signature, "Douglas Richardson", on the backside of the Jos A Rogers Jr head on a 1925 TB4. The previous owner purchased it from a Guitar Center in the southwest, Nevada / Utah area.
Does anyone have knowledge of a tenor banjo player / owner by that name? I'm only interested in the history of this instrument. I am not in pursuit of making contact with descendants.
I found this, an obituary from Colorado, which is nearby...
Douglas F. Richardson Obituary
He lived from October 1942 - December 2017
Any advice, like "don't go there", "here's what I would do", or otherwise, would be greatly appreciated.
