Biographical or Historical Information

In 1893 the purpose of the Music Department was "to give each opportunity to become a fairly good singer, to have sufficient knowledge of the rudiments of music..., and to be able to teach the first principles of singing and sight-reading to the pupils of her school." A special department of instrumental music was added to the curriculum in 1899. In 1912, under the direction of Wade R. Brown, the Music Department offered a regular course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Music. In 1921 the Music Department became the School of Music. As stated in the Annual Catalog (August 1986), the school "offers the only comprehensive music program from undergraduate through doctoral study in both performance and music education in North Carolina."

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
