r02 MUSICIANS NOW USE OLD CORAL GABLES INN By HAMPTON DUNN CORAL GABLES --The Musicians' Club of America is a cosmo politan club for musicians and music lovers, a cultural center in the community; a shrine to the great in music where grants, gifts and bequ ests perpetuate their memory, and a place for vacationing musi cians and a retirement home for its members. The main building is one of Coral Gables' landmarks. It is the former Coral Gables Inn, which opened in 1925 as the first hostelry and one of the f irst buildings in the area. The Gables was the "boom time baby" of George E. Derrick, one of the finest planned communities in the state. This Spanish style residence building has 35 spacious single and double bedrooms, a sun drenched patio decorated wit h centuries old Spanish tile, a well appointed lobby and a dining area overlooking palm shaded gardens. Other living accommodations are available in the Club's apartment buildings adjacent to the main building: The Musicians Club was founded in 1939 by t he late Dr. Bertha Foster who also helped found the University of Miami, and was the first Dean of its School of Music and the founder of the Mimai Conservatory. Recognizing the need for a national organization of musicians and music lovers which would ha ve as its aim the creation of a retirement home for the profession's senior members within their financial resources, Dr. Foster devoted nearly 30 years of untiring effort toward that objective. "We are far more than an old folks home," declared the Club' s Executive Director. "We want to remain a gathering place for musicians and music lovers, people from throughout the community as well as throughout the world."
