An obituary in yesterday's editions of The Washington Post about Earl B. Lippy contained incorrect information about his career. The obituary should have read as follows:
Earl B. Lippy , 78, a baritone soloist at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the manager of its glee club when he retired in 1959 and moved to Washington, died of cancer March 23 at the Washington Adventist Hospital. He lived in Silver Spring.
Mr. Lippy was born in Manchester, Md., and attended Western Maryland College. He studied singing at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore during the early 1930s. He performed in concerts on WBAL-Radio in Baltimore and WLW-Radio in Cincinnati. He moved to New York and began a concert career and sang at Radio City Music Hall.
During World War II, he served in the Army, where he was part of the Irving Berlin show, "This is the Army." The group toured Europe, Africa and the Pacific to raise money for the Army Emergency Relief Fund.
After the war, Mr. Lippy returned to Radio City Music Hall and remained there as a soloist and manager of the glee club until he retired.
He was a member of St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Silver Spring.
Survivors include his wife, Virginia, of Silver Spring.
