Wang Doodle Orchestra

Pictured here is the Wang Doodle Orchestra, a popular jazz band in Seattle in the early 1900s. As of December 1, 2019, their band does not have an article in Wikipedia. In addition, none of the band members have articles in Wikipedia. We will work to change that and fill the gap about Pacific Northwest, African American, and Women's history in Wikipedia.
