Arthur Foote (3/05/1853 - 4/08/1937)

Arthur William Foote was born in Salem, Massachusetts on 5 March 1853. From the age of thirteen, lecture series, Glee clubs and even a chapter of the Mozart Society were regular features of his life. In 1867 Foote went to Boston to study harmony with Stephan Emery at the newly founded New England Conservatory of Music where he made his first attempts at composition. In 1870 Foote was accepted by Harvard University, where he continued his musical activities, becoming director of the Harvard Glee Club and in his senior year he began studies with the composer John Knowles Paine.

Following his graduation in 1874, Foote returned to Salem. During that summer he decided to take organ lessons from the local musician and educator Benjamin Johnson Lang, a concert promoter, choir director, and former student of Liszt. Lang encouraged Foote to pursue music as a full-time career. Foote returned to Harvard to continue his study with Paine, receiving the very first Master of Arts degree in Music awarded by an American university.
