The idea to establish this Society, I got in the year 1998 when I first read about Anthony Philip Heinrich in „Our American Music“ by J. T. Howard.
Gradually, I studied his work and life, featured his songs in public. About ten years later got my efforts in popularizing A. P. Heinrich, thanks to study at the University of Economics, positive impulses.
In my thesis in 2011 I set out a strategy animation of works of A. P. Heinrich. The establishment of society, websites and other activities that I realized, were planned in 2011 in this animation strategy.
I used and still use only my own finances for all costs of research of Heinrich´s life and work and the establishment of the Society.
