During the period of his earliest success as a composer, Karl King became acquainted with several members of the band in Carrollton, Ohio, located some thirty miles southeast of Canton (present population around 3,000). The Carrollton Band was organized in 1872. In 1896, the band was reorganized to run in a more businesslike fashion, with M. H. Webster, director and Ira S. Moody, manager. King's Carrollton March, dedicated to Moody, was published in 1909.
