The P.A. Starck Piano Company was founded by Philip Adam Starck in Chicago. Phil Starck was born in 1860 and was the son of Christian W. Starck, a Lutheran minister. He developed a love for music at a very early age. He established the Starck and Strack Piano Compny in 1891, but sold it to Russell Piano Company in 1894. He returned to the Story and Clark Piano Company, where he originally got his start in the piano industry. In 1904, he once again established his own piano company,the P.A. Starck Piano Company. He died unexpectantly while traveling on the West Coast with his daughters, Marguerite and Gladys. His son, Philip T. had already taken over as president of the company. The story of Philip A. Starck is one of the true rags to riches stories. From having started out as an errand boy in a piano company, working his way up, and then establishing his own successful company. It was said, "If Phil Starck could not sell a piano, no one could". He was truly admired among the men in the piano trade.
