From the OHS Database Builders editor (Hall, February 2, 2017) -

Norman A. Greenwood was born December 31, 1929 in Asheville, North Carolina; he was the son of William C. Greenwood. He worked with the Estey Organ Co. of Brattleboro, Vermont, 1949-1950, then after a three year absence returned as a sales-service representative for that firm, 1953-1957. He then took a similar position as representative of Hillgreen, Lane & Co. of Alliance, Ohio, 1957-1963. He established his own service firm, Greenwood Organ Co. of Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1964; he was still active in that firm in 1995 and probably later than that as North Carolina business records indicate the business closed the year after his death. Norman A. Greenwood died June 14, 2013 in North Carolina.
