Guy Colby was one of the veteran square dance callers on the WLS
National Barn Dance in the 1940s. He taught thousands '...to enjoy
the vigorous rhythms of old-time dances'.
Said to radiate the spirit and vigor of youth, even after many, many
years of callign square dances on Saturday Nights on the Barn Dance.
Around mid 1940's or so, he was also teaching a large number of groups
in the Chicagoland area how to do the old square dances. They said he
found that sometimes, the square dances seemed to be a bit more
popluar than the modern 'ballroom' dances.
