Louis Calhoun

Louis Calhoun was born Sept. 18, 1922. He started calling while he was in college (he graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He was the recreation director at Fontana Village, NC for many years in the late 1960s, working with the Fontana Ramblers bringing square dancing to the area. He called all over the United States and had clubs in Madisonville, KY; Dawson Springs, KY and Marion, KY. Once when preparing to call for over 400 dancers a fellow caller dared him to write a hash call on the fly and call it to them. He wrote one out on a napkin and called it. It worked flawlessly. He had a good voice and a great mind for calling. He served on the National Advisory Board for the American Square Dance Magazine for many years. His wife Ann taught round dancing and helped him in numerous ways. His oldest son, Louis Calhoun, Jr. lives in Brooklyn, NY and he has two other sons in Kentucky (David and Jeff Calhoun) and a step-son in Tennessee (Robert Hand). On one unfortunate road trip home from Detroit he fell asleep at the wheel of his car in Beaver Dam, KY. The vehicle slammed into a sign post and Louis Calhoun died on April 13, 1975. He appeared on the cover of American Squares magazine's 20th Anniversary edition in January 1965. He recorded on many labels including Thunderbird, Lore, Longhorn, and Jewel.
