American Musical Instrument Society publication grant
In 2011, the American Musical Instrument Society created an annual grant to help defray the costs of preparing an article appropriate for publication in the Journal of the American Musical Instrument Society. The Editorial Board, along with Janet K. Page and Allison A. Alcorn, editors, is pleased to announce that the first annual Publication Grant has been awarded to Robert Howe for the project "Dating the Trieberts’ work by application of high-magnification color photography.”
Robert Howe lives with his children in Western Massachusetts, where he practices medicine and studies musicology at the University of Connecticut. An avid semi-professional oboist, he has published in the Journal and Newsletter of AMIS, as well as in the Galpin Society Journal, Larigot, the Double Reed, National Review, the New England Journal of Medicine and a dozen other journals. He has presented at three meetings of the AMIS, has received research grants from the Galpin Society and from Selmer et Cie, and was awarded the 2006 Frances Densmore Prize of the AMIS for his paper on the Boehm oboe.
