Okeh Records was founded in 1916 by Otto K. E. Heinemann (18771965), the German-American manager for the U.S. branch of German Odeon Records. The label folded in 1935. Columbia revived it in 1940 and pressed Okeh until 1946. In 1951 the label once again was revived - this time to last until early 1970.
