    Quincy Whitney discusses her book American Luthier: Carleen Hutchins– the Art and Science of the Violin. From the time of Stradivari, the violinmaking world has been a cloistered male bastion preserving closely guarded secrets and a lucrative violin market. When chamber music friends asked Carleen Maley Hutchins, a grade school science teacher, amateur trumpet player, and New Jersey housewife in the 1950s, to trade her trumpet for a $75 viola, she decided to try making one, setting in motion a surprising story of a self-taught genius colliding with an ancient guild.
