"Over 500 of Canisteo's residents assembled in Academy Hall last Friday evening in attendance at the Crary-Gideon entertainment.
The young artists - they are just entering on the age of manhood - won rounds of applause from their appreciative audience.
Both Messes. Crary and Gideon proved clearly that they are possessed of cultured genius for their chosen profession. There are a few parts,
however, which give opportunities for harsh criticism, but which will doubtless appear less in the future. The young men have many
warm well wishers in this community." - Canisteo (New York) Times / September 30, 1897 -
"Crary & Gideon combination presenting 'A Pair of Lunatics' will be at the Opera House next Wednesday evening."
