David Blake (Ph.D., Music History/Theory, 2014) Awarded the Joyce Tracy Fellowship

June 8, 2015

David Blake (Ph.D., Music History/Theory, 2014) has been awarded the Joyce Tracy Fellowship from the American Antiquarian Society and a Geraldine E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund Award from the Library of Congress American Folklife Center. This research examines two episodes of popular music at American colleges a century apart: student music at four northeastern colleges (Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth, and Williams) between 1850 and 1872; and the college concerts of Pete Seeger between 1952 and 1962. These grants will contribute to his book project, currently titled Recreation, Education, and Elitism: Popular Music in American College Student Life.
