Subject: John Charles Thomas real ID Joseph Toner
From: GUEST,Valerie B Kaiser, AKA Valerie B. Kaiser, MD
Date: 07 Apr 13 - 11:18 PM

The IMBD has strict criterea for changing a person's identity, birth date (which is almost never done) and death date. Yet for conclusive reasons accepted world wide, the music of JOSEPH TONER proves he is the historical JOHN CHARLES THOMAS. He is also known under other names such as Richard Torigi and Earl Wrightson, Guy Robertson, William Kent, and others. He was a film star as well, known to many of those who you know famously, but those films have been destroyed, though successful. You can follow him on YouTube at:

Frankly, it sounds like someone has pulled off a hoax at IMDb. Perhaps it is you, Dr. Kaiser?

When I search on "John Charles Thomas" on IMDb it responds with an entry that says Joseph Toner. But when I read the liner notes on my John Charles Thomas cd, it looks like he had such a robust career that this other name would have been common knowledge by now. Or why would it have been necessary? He was a household name in his day. And if you do a YouTube search on John Charles Thomas there are lots of extant films of him sounding and looking like himself, not looking the guy now shown at IMDb.

When I look up "Joseph Toner" I only find Valerie B. Kaiser as the source on any articles. I found this facebook page with an account of something that bears no resemblance to the life of John Charles Thomas.

I had a drink tonight, but I don't think that is enough to make this account as scrambled as it seems to be. There's too much out there about John Charles Thomas for this new identity to make any sense.

I suggest a mudcat moderator working on the DigitalTradition end of things hold on the 'origins' post started by this guest until someone can look into it. I'd hate to see John Charles Thomas disappear because of this allegation that seems goofy to me.

The photo of John Charles Thomas-who-she-says-is-really-Toner?

The photo of "Joseph Toner."

They don't seem to even have the same color of eyes, let alone facial features.

Here is a google search on Valerie Kaiser.

The more I look into this, the screwier it seems. The ONLY person making all of these changes and putting up a Toner YouTube page with Thomas recordings is Valerie Kaiser. Are there any John Charles Thomas scholars around who can confirm or refute all of this activity on behalf of Thomas?

As a performer John Charles Thomas was an important figure - he spanned a lot of genres, and despite his operatic work, he continued to perform popular and folk music. We've had interesting discussions about him before.

It looks, from a cursory bit of research, that a one-woman campaign to usurp Thomas's life and name is underway. I'm astonished that IMDb changed the listing with so little research, just her say-so.

Many questionable claims regarding musicals such as the "Gypsy Baron," "The Circus Princess" and others, some trying to support her claim, on youtube.

I've just pulled up his obituary from the New York Times, published on December 14, 1961.

Here is what I just posted at IMDb:

John Charles Thomas's birth and death dates have been changed by "Dr. Kaiser." Thomas was born Sept. 6, 1891 and died on Dec. 13, 1960.

See Wikipedia (as a starting point)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Charles_Thomas

The _New York Times_ ran an obituary, published Dec. 14, 1960 titled "JohnCharles Thomas Dies at 69; Concert, Opera and Radio Star: _________;___. o Popular Baritone Performed In Musicals and Operettas Noted as Showman" (I suspect the underlines are for fancy text that didn't scan properly.)

Here it is via the ProQuest citation:

There is no matchup between the individuals. It looks like Kaiser is delusional and systematically papering over Thomas's history with her wishful thinking that he actually be her grandfather, by conscripting Thomas' information and claiming it was always really Mr. Toner.


The new information Kaiser posted at IMDb says:


Joseph Toner (1894–1984)
Trivia: He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6933 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California. See more trivia »
Born:

Died: May 24, 1984 (age 89) in Nassau Hospital, Lynbrook, Nassau, New York, USA

On the next page (follow the trivia link) it has:

Death

A search for John Charles Thomas at the New York Times comes up with 1540 hits, since 1851 (this link may only work for NYT subscribers). There isn't a single hit on "Joseph Toner" during all of those years. Not even an obituary.

I've written to the publisher of the book John Charles Thomas (2006) to ask if they can send me the email of the author (Michael Maher). He's as close to a modern day scholar on the subject as we're likely to find (though I could dip into the MLA databases). He ought to be able to nip this in the bud.

It may seem silly, taking up a cause when most people don't know or remember who he is. But his work was important. His name is mentioned along with John Jacob Niles and Percy Grainger. Prologue to Pagliacci (1945) or the spiritual Swing Low, Sweet Chariot or "Kansas City" from Oklahoma! or "Take Me Back to My Boots and Saddle" or Burns' "Ye Banks and Braes". He wasn't about to be pigeon-holed as one type of singer. He loved opera, but he also loved western songs and traditional and spiritual songs. He doesn't deserve to have some wacko in Brooklyn usurp his name and reputation.

If you look at Valerie Kaiser's Google+ page with a link to her YouTube channel you'll see that she is conflating people and events into a slurry of musical theater nonsense. For example, scroll down to the "Oklahoma! Soundtrack 1944" remark she posted March 17, 2012. You can't get past the first few seconds without realizing this woman is barking.

I'll stop with the remarks - Google provides ample evidence of her delusions (see her name in the first post here where she posted as a guest). It's a kick in the ass to clear things up if you see someone willfully usurp the good name and reputation of a performer like this. She's claiming all sorts of nonsense. It would be cruel to hammer her any more - but it isn't unreasonable to try to undo some of the damage. She claims she is being stalked - I'm sure that is because people are trying to tell her to stop doing this and she thinks this is stalking.

There is no Joseph Toner in music except in Kaiser's imagination. She has apparently conflated several artists and applied them or their attributes all to her grandfather. I pursued this simply to restore Thomas to his rightful place at IMDb and get rid of the YouTube nonsense. When you look at the wide range of music he performed and recorded, he really was a musical Renaissance Man.

This reminds me of the original Star Trek episode in which guest star James Daly plays an unknown Earth man named Flint. It was called Requiem for Methuselah and the premise is that this very ancient being kept reinventing himself and was all of the various great world European composers (Mozart, Beethoven, etc.). One wonders where the thread originator got the idea that various artists were all parts of one man who has no name or imprint in music (that I can find).

She claims on her Google+ page that she is being stalked. One can only presume that she blocks all remarks because they come from people protesting this fantasy of hers.

There is a response on my IMDb query that directed me to an Amazon book Fiorello, A New Musical in which Kaiser and someone who calls herself "Shewolff77" offers a garbled support of Kaiser's account. There is also a one-off review by someone with the interesting name of "Deamon Ferret" (probably an avatar of the two women posting here) in which they claim Sheldon Harnick (lyricist of Fiorello) didn't write the songs.

A Google search on "Sheldon Harnick" "Joseph Toner" comes up with links to various comprehensive works about Broadway plays. It looks like if he did exist he was a walk-on bit player. BlueGoBo page for Fiorello shows he played a "seedy man." Click on Toner's name and it gives a very slight oeuvre on Broadway - two musicals. The last one where he was a walk-on did not involve Thomas. They don't appear to have crossed paths, at least not in what I find so far.

A link to the a page in the Google Book The Golden Age of American Musical Theater: 1943-1965 shows that "Joseph Toner" had three bit parts in the premiere of Fiorello starring Tom Bosley. It's hard to get Toner to show up unless you link him with another name.

I found a link to turn in changes at IMDB. Not sure I filled it out right, but if they take a moment to follow a couple of links I posted they can see for themselves.

I'm afraid that Valerie Kaiser has also corrupted YouTube, with listings reading "Joseph Toner singing as John Charles Thomas."

I don't really know how to get into it to set the information straight.

I remember baritone John Charles Thomas well from hearing him on the radio back in the 1940s and 50s. Fine voice, sang all kinds of material. Quite well-known at the time.

(One of the radio commedians, Fred Allen? Bob Hope? referred to him as "the three little boys who sing, John, Charles, and Thomas.").

I have NEVER heard of a "Joseph Toner."

She has been at various places where she can post without expense, and she set up accounts on facebook and Google+ - when anyone challenges her she protests that she is being stalked. I get this from her remarks on her pages - and there aren't may outside remarks allowed.

There is a book at Amazon, Fiorello, A New Musical in which she and a loony friend launch into an attack on one of the lyricists, claiming that Sheldon Harnick apparently stole credit for work by her father.

The ONLY way to get a Joseph Toner hit in Google that wasn't put there by Kaiser is to search on his name in conjunction with another. Internet Broadway Database shows that he had 11 walk-on bit parts in his lifetime. The first 10 were from 1917 to 1939, with his last bit roles as "Seedy Man, Judge Carter, 4th Heckler" in Fiorello! from 1959-1961.

When you visit the pages this woman has set up you can see that she is delusional, scooping a whole bunch of mainstream early-to-mid twentieth century performers (most diseased and no one watching their reputations) into this conflated musical theater individual named Joseph Toner.

I am tempted to make a list of all of the claims Valerie Kaiser (daughter or granddaughter - sometimes it is unclear) of Mr. Toner has made and run a giant "'Joseph Toner' isn't 'fill-in-the-blank'" thread.

In one paragraph here she claimed he was also

She is choosing a lot of artists who have faded from the mainstream and users might not know better than to use her fractured version of Broadway and film musical history.

If one listens with any discretion to the various recordings on YouTube purported to be "Joseph Toner" it becomes evident they are different voices. Toner is styled in several places to be a tenor, yet John Charles Thomas and Earl Wrightson were baritones, and Richard Torigi was a tenor. The misinformation has to be catalogued and removed from the web; this is very close to a criminal conspiracy (of one?).
