Harmonica band

I was reading one of Uncle John's trivia books -- which are designed with bathroom readers in mind -- about harmonicas. It listed American presidents who played, including Lincoln (easy to believe) and -- Woodrow Wilson!

WOODROW WILSON! The grimmest looking president of them all! Wow!

Then Uncle John went on to describe a solid gold, jewel-encrusted harmonica given by the Hohner company to -- Pope Pius XI.

What a band they could have put together if they had bumped into each other, say in Paris in 1919.
