Anne Dhu McLucas Research Fellowship

Anne Dhu McLucasAnne Dhu McLucas was a brilliant polymath with wide-ranging interests in all things musical, a wonderful teacher and demanding but supportive mentor, a stellar scholar, a mountain-climber and skier, and a gentle woman with an infectious personality. She was cut down in in the prime of her life, the victim of homicide, but her memory and legacy lives on.

After Anne’s death the Society for American Music created a fellowship in her memory.  We chose to focus on two areas of scholarship that were near to her heart—non-native music in the oral tradition and the music of Native Americans.  The fellowship, when completed, will fund research (either archival or in the field) by a graduate student.

The Society will be meeting next March in Boston—a city with which Anne closely identified. She was a Harvard graduate and faculty member, a scholar who delved deeply into materials in the Harvard Theatre Collection, and an influential faculty member at Boston College. It would be fitting to be able to announce completion of this fellowship at the Boston meeting.  Would you help us do so?
