Baldwin Piano & Organ Co. was established in 1862 by Dwight Hamilton Baldwin, a music teacher in the Cincinnati area. Originally Baldwin was a retail enterprise, selling Steinway and Chickering pianos. Baldwin began manufacturing its own line of pianos in 1890 when it lost the Steinway franchise. Lucien Wulsin was hired by the firm as a bookkeeper in 1866, became a partner in 1873, and purchased a controlling interest in the business after Baldwin died in 1899. Baldwin and Wulsin, and later Wulsin's heirs, pioneered methods of business organization and merchandising, still used today, that made Baldwin into one of the most successful and financially stable companies in the United States. At twenty-plus thousand pianos annually, Baldwin is the largest-selling manufacturer of pianos in the United States.
