On May 23, 1829, the Accordion patent granted to Cyrill Demian in Vienna, Austrian Empire. Accordion Crimes by Annie Proulx, a Pulitzer Prize–winning author, tells a series of stories spanning a century and several countries with one green accordion. As a side note, the curator of this website would greatly appreciate it if Weird Al Yankovic could write a polka also called Accordion Crimes. He should also write a book.
