Harry Wolf

Harry Wolf has had quite a life—and boy, does he have a knack for telling stories!

Waterloo G BandHarry grew up in Waterloo, Illinois, leaving home for a stint in the Marines in North Carolina and four years of college in Pennsylvania, but then he came back home, where he has been a key member of the Waterloo community for more than 60 years.

Harry is the driving force behind the Waterloo German Band, now in its 73rd year. Under Harry’s direction, the Waterloo German Band has delighted young and old with oompah music—not only in his home town, but all over the country . . . and in Germany, too!

Harry’s love of travel has led him to visit nearly 100 countries on six continents. Everywhere he goes, he experiences life to the fullest, and he brings home stories that he is now sharing with you. Enjoy! HarryWolfBook Order Form

I like to share the difficult stories of people and places, and help others reconnect to their own past.
