Vera Baerg

Vera Baerg (February 23, 1912-October 5, 2010) Vera started square dance calling in the early 50's. It started as a hobby, calling for square dances at schools. But because of her beautiful voice and warm personality she soon became one of the most popular callers in California. She would call for dances with different square dance clubs at least 3 to 4 nights a week. Jack, her husband, assisted her by carrying and setting up her sound equipment. He was a wonderful square dancer and partner. Vera became very popular and traveled calling in the western United States. As the caller she even accompanied square dance tours to Mexico, Hawaii and Europe. Vera was considered one of the top female callers in the U.S. She recorded several records for MacGregor Label. Vera retired from calling in the early 70's.
