Cameron Baird: Bringing Paul Hindemith and Aaron Copland to Buffalo

Cameron Baird

Cameron Baird, founder of the Music Department at the University at Buffalo, was responsible for bringing two of the 20th century’s most famous composers to the University to teach: Paul Hindemith and Aaron Copland. Both of the appointments had intriguing stories associated with them that demonstrate the range of Baird’s reach in the musical world at the time and provide a measure of his humanitarianism and courage in the face of political factors beyond the world of music. This exhibit presents documentation related to those stories.

View the exhibit in the Music Library, 104 Baird Hall, now through October 2014. Or view the summary of the exhibit online.

Exhibit written and curated by John Bewley.
