Anybody know Pat Van Haren?

According to the story, this H.N.White King was built in 1928, satin silver with a gold wash bell, serial number 102392. Pat bought it from a school and rebuilt it himself, and it was stolen from his garage just three weeks after he finished.

The byline attached to the video is Tony Overman, toverman@theolympian.com

Just to be clear, a sousaphone from the late 20s is not rare, even in such the condition that he bought it at.

Still suck that it was stolen.
