    Here is an article published today in Washington Post about Philip Johnson, a passionate Violin Thief !

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/style/2016/03/17/the-violin-thief/

    This is a relatively long article with a beautiful story about a historical violin thief. I hope someone might like the historical incidents described in here related to a few famous violins. Hope you enjoy. Thank you.

    I actually heard this story on NPR several months ago. One of the daughters of the original owner, Nina, is one of the correspondents for NPR. It’s a shame the violin wasn’t found before their father passed away so he could be reunited with it.

    That was an excellent article. Thanks.

    I had read a news story when the violin was first returned but the in-depth article puts a whole new perspective on things.
