Piano Manufacturer, Businessman. He was the great-grandson of Heinrich Engelhard Steinway, who established the Steinway Company as the leading piano manufacturer in America in 1853. In 1942, he became a factory manager at his family's company and was president of Steinway & Sons in 1955. He served in that role for more than 20 years and was the last Steinway to run the piano-making company. In 1977, he sold the company to the CBS Corporation for $20.1 million in stocks, but remained as chairman until 1985. He also was the founding president of the NAMM Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, California and received the National Medal of Arts Award from President Bush in 2007. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
