Going through her mother's belongings, a woman from Springfield, VA rediscovered a box of 78rpm records from the 1920s.
Her mother purchased the records at a garage sale in the '60s because they featured images and the name of her father-in-law, Wallace Rogerson.
Our contributor remembers listening to the records when she was young, hearing music and her deceased grandfather giving exercise instructions.
She can't find any details about Wallace or the record collection and asked History Detectives to find out more about these records.
Was her grandfather the Jack LaLanne of the 1920's?
