VAUDEVILLE TO MET:
Bossart Traces Career as Accompanist
By DAVID KAPLAN
"Accompanying s h o u 1 d be
taught as an art instead of the
role of a disappointed pianist,"
commented Eugene Bossart who
has accompanied noted soloists
from the Metropolitan Opera and
is now on the School of Music
Born in Erie, Pa., Bossart start-
ed his accompanying career when
he was 11 years old as pianist for
the local male chorus. At 14 years
of age, he began playing the piano
in a local vaudeville house.
After he was graduated from
high school, Bossart went on the
road playing for Junior League
shows. After six months he won a
scholarship to the Curtis Institute
of Music in Philadelphia.
In 1939, he went into the Phila-
delphia Opera Company as assist-
ant conductor where he met Fran-
ces Greer (now on the School of
Music faculty). He was accompan-
ist for concerts around Philadel-
phia and then went on a tour of
It was during this tour that Bos-
sart accompanied Miss Greer in
her first professional concert
which took place in her home town
of Helena, Ark.
Bossart received his diploma
from the Curtis Institute in 1942,
and at graduation received the
Curtis Award of $250 for the stu-
dent "most likely to succeed."
When Bossart was discharged
from the army in 1946, Zimbalist
recommended him to Columbia
Artists Management in New York.
He auditioned for Charles Kull-
man of the Metropolitan and went
on tour with him for six weeks.
With Columbia Artists
"This was my entry into Colum-
bla Artists," he said. The next
year, Bossart was accompanist for
instrumentalists and soloists un-
der the management of Columbia
In 1951, after competitive ex-
aminations, he became the exclu-
sive accompanist for Gladys Swar-
thout of the Metropolitan Opera.
As her accompanist, he toured
South America and the West In-
That summer, he went to Eur-
ope with Miss Swarthout and was
musical advisor and coach for 26
television films made in Rome,
Italy, with stars from the Metro-
politan and La Scala in Milan.
After returning from Europe,
Bossart began his coaching acti-
vities in New -York with artists
from the New York City Center
Opera Company and the Metro-,
"I was very interested in getting
my roots in a university where ac-
companying is taught as an art
and that is why I chose the Uni-
versity of Michigan," he said.
He will be teaching accompany-
ing in both instrumental and vo-
cal fields, and will assist in coach-,
ing vocal students for graduate
and senior recitals.

Segregation of Negroes at U.
Of N1.C. Stirs Up Students
A storm of student protest and
inquiry arose at the University of
North Carolina this week when it
was revealed that the only two
Negroes at the university are liv-
ing in a segregated dormitory sec-
Where the usual setup in the
dormitory system at North Caro-
lina is for three students to oc-
cupy a room, Romalus Murphy
and James Slade, Negro graduate
students, have single rooms on the
third floor of Steele Dormitory
with the two adjacent rooms va-
James E. Wadsworth, university
housing officer, stated that as
early as last fall, before any ap-
plications had been received from
Negro students, this section was
reserved for Negroes despite a long
waiting line for dorm space. He
declined to disclose the source of
Other high officials in the ad-
ministration were equally vague
about who was responsible for the;
edict. University President Gordon
Gray said "I just don't remember.
I doubt that the Board of Trustees
made the decision."
Investigation by the campus
newspaper, The Tarheel, did not
reveal a state law demanding the]
segregation of Negro students.
Moreover, the Supreme Court, in
the case of G. W. McLaurin vs.1
the Oklahoma State Regents for
Higher Education, declared that a
colored student admitted to a
state-supported graduate school
must receive the same treatment
from the state students of other
Thus it is ruled that it was illegal;
for the University of Oklahoma toj
require McLaurin to live in sep-
arate quarters, to eat in a special
section of the cafeteria, and to
study in a special section of the
Despite the segregation issue
which whirled over their heads,
Slade and Murphy remained the
calmest of the involved parties.
Said Slade, "I didn't give segrega-
tion a thought. I was thinking
about all the big assignments we'd
have in Med school."
But while the two students are
absorbed in their classwork, Chapel
Hill rings with demands for the
abolition of their segregation. Ap-
plications have been received by
the housing department for quart-
ers in the vacant space in Steele
The possibility of state action
was foreshadowed by Chancellor
Robert B. House when he said he
could not comment "in advance
of the state ruling." He refused
