Professor Donald E Steele Music Research Award
The purpose of the Professor Donald E Steele Music Research Award is to support the travel expenses of undergraduate and graduate students and faculty members conducting research in music history. The Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, in consultation with the Chair of the Music Departmen,t will be responsible for administering all expenditures from the Fund.
The Fund was created in 2014 through a generous gift from Daniel Heartz, professor emeritus in musicology at the University of California, Berkeley and an alumnus of the University of New Hampshire. Heartz has published widely on topics including Classical music and the sixteenth-century printer Pierre Attaingnant. He also taught UNH professor emeritus Keith Polk (formerly chair of the Department of Music at UNH) when Polk took his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley. Donald Steele, professor of music at UNH from 1946 to 1979, taught a number of music department faculty including Paul Verrette, Mary Rasmussen, and Michael Annicchiarico.
