ABOUT

The Dorothy Gerber Strings Program (DGSP), provides a high caliber education in the traditional stringed instruments (violin, viola, cello, and bass) to students in Northwestern Michigan.  

About the Gerber Products Company

Gerber was founded in 1927 in Fremont, Michigan, by Daniel Frank Gerber, owner of the Freemont Canning Company, which produced canned fruit and vegetables. At the suggestion of a pediatrician, Gerber's wife, Dorothy, began making hand-strained food for their seven-month-old daughter, Sally.  Recognizing a business opportunity, Gerber began making baby food. By 1928 he had developed five products for the market: beef vegetable soup and strained peas, prunes, carrots, and spinach. Six months later, Gerber's baby foods were distributed nationwide.
