Biographical Note

William Parks Grant was born in Lakewood, Ohio in 1910. In 1932, he received the first Bachelor of Music degree ever awarded by Capital University in Columbus. An M.A. from Ohio State University followed in 1933, the subject of his thesis being on the music of Mahler, then almost unknown in the United States. In 1948 he received a PhD from the Eastman School of Music, submitting his Second Symphony as his dissertation. Grant composed symphonies, concertos, chamber music, piano music, songs, choral music, etc., and was the author of two books and 35 magazine articles. Grant held fellowships and scholarship from the Presser Foundation, Yaddo, the Huntington Hartford Foundation, and the Leonard Bernstein Foundation. Grant also taught music in the public schools of Ohio, at Tarleton State College in Texas, at Louisiana State University, at Temple University and at The University of Mississippi from 1953 to 1973.
