Variations on Many Themes

EVEN THE BEST FALTER-Facing the mob is no easy task. Here
Art Walker, Michigan football star, pauses before facing one of

By DAVID KAPLAN
AFTER more than 20 years on
the music school faculty, Prof.
Louise E. Cuyler feels that "ev-
ery time I leave Michigan I'm
gladder to get back.
"This was my first job," she
continued, "and it looks like it may
be my last. There's something
very warm and wonderful about
Michigan and I love it."
Prof. Cuyler was graduated
from Omaha Central High School
in Nebraska and then went to
Eastman School of Music in Roch-
ester, N.Y.
"I started as a violinist at East-
man, played in theater orchestras
in Rochester and for a year was
editor for a Rochester theater pro-
gram. I even found time to do ra-
dio work," she added.
She received her Bachelor's de-
gree at Eastman and her Mas-
ter's at the University. In 1948,
she received the degree of Doctor
of Philosophy in musicology from
the University of Rochester.
During her career at the Univer-
sity, she has taught almost all the-
ory and musicology courses at one
time or another.
SHORTLY AFTER the Second
World War broke out, Prof.
Cuyler was granted a leave of ab-

sence to enlist in the Americar
Red Cross. As Club Director, sh
scheduled programs at the Servic
Clubs, and was stationed for th
duration of the war in New Cale
donia.
She worked with special group
in Fiji and the Hebrides Islands
developing radio hook-ups betweer
islands, forming a quartet witl
GIs and providing dinner musi
for large parties.
She returned to the Unite
States in the summer of 1945 an
went to Eastman for further grad
uate study, coming back to th
University for the 1946 Summe
Session.
In 1950, the University Pres
published Prof. Cuyler's "Chorali
Constantinus, Book III" undere
Rackham grant. The book is a col
lection of 16th century motets b
the Flemish composer Heinrict
Isaac.
Prof. Cuyler transcribed and ed
ited the works, "because the syss
tm of musical notation was ac
different in all music before 1600.'
The following year, she receive
a Rackham Travel grant for re
search in Rome and Bern, as wel
as a Mediterranean trip by freight
er.
"Traveling by freighter, espe
cially for 51 days as I did, migh

n be a little grimif you had no work
e to do or if you don't find one or
e two companions on board. I was
e lucky and had both."
"I landed at Athens, saw some { ?
friends and flew to Rome where I
s did research at the Vatican Li-
, brary. From there I went to Bern
n for further research."
o A FULBRIGHT sarch grant
and lectureship in Belgium was
given to Prof. Cuyler in 1953. She
d lived in Brussels and did research
- at the Bibliotheq ue Royale. Her
lectures were given on American
music in twer, Tonai, Bros-
ans d Luxembourg.
s A highlight of her Fulbright
Dsabbatical was the UnIversity'sy
a purchase of the $1,000 Stelfleld --sily-Olek Oaskll
