This volume is the first reference study devoted to early American musicologists. It brings together a vast variety of logically arranged information, including biographical resumes of each subject, complete chronological listings of their writings, and published and unpublished sources for study of each scholar's intellectual production. Steinzor's introduction provides a fascinating overview of the historical evolution of musicological writing in this country and offers some valuable suggestions for further research. This definitive work will be of interest to musicologists, historians, teachers of music history, and anyone engaged in the study of music. This bibliography identifies basic research materials for the study of the establishment of musicology in this country. It contains bio-bibliographies for 35 American musicologists, including 19 native-born Americans and 16 European scholars, selected by virtue of their central roles in the development of musicological research, pedagogy, and publication, and by their formal association with the earliest practitioners of the discipline. Although many of their careers have continued well past the period ending in 1945, their writings from about 1890 to the end of World War II represent the critical, formative period of American musicology.
