Mr. Gilmore

San Jose, when it still had orchards

  • For three decades, Mr. Gilmore kept season tickets for the San Francisco Opera. Later he became a fan of San Jose Opera.
  • He was an old-fashioned gentleman. For dinner, he always had a flower, a bottle of wine.
  • His tape collection was enormous and it wasn’t just audio in opera, but also video, including every Star Trek program produced.
  • When Mr. Gilmore’s tape collection was offered for sale, a prospective buyer said, “I would have loved to meet the man who bought all this.”
  • Donald Gilmore was fond of saying, “If you can define it, you can measure it. If you can measure it, you can teach it.”
