Summary "Born November 27, 1857 near Chambersburg, Ohio, Daniel Webster Crist grew up the proverbial poor, barefoot farm boy. He worked his way through college and became a school teacher. He never recieved any formal music training but had a large clientele of piano students. By the 1880s, the Crist family had moved just east of New Franklin to the small settlement of Moultrie. He began to pursue his ambition to write music and lyrics. Convinced of the quality of his compositions, he invested his entire fortune, approximately $200, to publish his sacred songs himself. The large volume of sales from a very small community made for some interesting events in Moultrie, Ohio. Dr. James Perone shares the story of Crist, along with members of Mu Phi Epsilon at the piano playing a selection Crist's compositions."--Container. Crist also served in the Ohio House of Representatives; certain historical artifacts related to his time there are displayed in the Mabel Hartzell Museum in Alliance, Ohio
