John Abbott, a chemical engineer, known for his role in development of food freeze-drying processes, introduced himself to CMH after reading her first article in Scientific American. He and his wife, Doris, were good friends of the bowmaker, John Bollander, with the result that his interests shifted to research on bows. This activity led to the articles included herein, final preparations for which were assisted by his son as he raced against time in his fight against terminal cancer. Topics: Bow dynamics; Bollander, John; Mahogony for frogs.
Topics: response measurement; Harmonic analysis. Abbott worked during the ls on methods of testing violins and published at least one paper, included here. He went to F. Saunders to discuss his methods and ideas, but Saunders did not wish to collaborate.

A Swedish engineer who has worked with the instruments of the viol family for many years. He developed and made a slightly enlarged version of the treble viol. In the process of this he worked with K. Stetson on the interferometric holograms of the viol plates, braces and all, photos of which are in the file. See the JASA paper on this. He also developed a moire method of visualizing the arching contours of viol and violin plates which can be quite helpful in getting the arches symmetrical.
Technical: 8 papers from ; 4 papers, 3 drafts, and 1 magazine article Topics: Hologram interferometry Electronic plate tuning Technology and viols Resonance measurement. Saunders who had moved to South Hadley for his retirement years.

When Saunders died she collected all his research equipment and turned it over to the CAS. Through she continued her interest and membership in the CAS and always sent us a Christmas card of her beloved collie. Correspondence: Christmas cards and letters to CMH - Topics: Germanium crystal. Members of the CAS participated in several symposia on musical acoustics at the annual meetings, and particularly.
The meeting was organized by A. Benade and included a demonstration concert of the Octet instruments. Walter Sullivan attended and gave us a fine write up in the New York Times which would have resulted in a NOVA TV show except that we did not have a full octet performance group available. Correspondence: primarily about the Dec. Correspondents include: A. Sinclair, Raymond J. Seeger and W. Dixon Ward. American Association for the Advancement of Science - Correspondence, Miscellaneous: Dec. Program, notes, and handout. Miscellaneous: Jan.
Also an invitation to speak at meeting in Chicago declined. The idea for this society came from Dr Albert Kaplan, a retired psychologist, who had contacted a group of his friends, including Mr Sidney Fox, an engineer with Bethlehem Steel and an avid chamber music player. Fox, who had purchased one of Hutchins violas, wrote to her in at the Catgut Acoustical Society suggesting that we meet with Kaplan to discuss the need for such a society.
Hutchins felt that such a school should be connected with a broader education than just violin making as is the case in both Cremona and Mittenwald. Kaplan wanted a separate school. After several more discussions and efforts to locate possible sources of funds, Kaplan and his group decided to found the American Society for the Advancement of Violin Making.
The information in this file gives a brief survey of this development and the subsequent change in name to the Violin Society of America.

A pianist and organist F. He was much interested in the work of the CAS and the development of the Octet instruments. At the time he worked with us he was Director of Music at Antioch College. He participated in a grant proposal to N. Hertzberg and H. He became very much interested in the research and developments in violin making that were going on and saw the need for further work along these lines. In subsequent conversations with CMH, Hertzberg developed the idea that Antioch College would be a good place for such a program which would give it a center and the possibility for some real funding which CMH was unable to get because the foundations she had approached indicated that one person working in her own cellar was not a good risk.
The resulting grant proposal to the National Science Foundation is included here and indicates the scope and personnel involved. Hutchins felt that the grant was overstated and too costly. Some of her reactions to a meeting with the group at Antioch are included here.
The grant was not funded. The CAS continued to pursue its own course at Essex and in the next few years managed to do the work projected in the grant without extra funding. Topics: Grant proposal; Violin school. A Language of Material: English. A famous string instrument pedagogue, known throughout the USA and abroad, who gave hundreds of string clinics, many of them sponsored by the American String Teachers Association, largely for teachers and high school students. Also, "The Way They Play". The Applebaums lived in Maplewood, not far from Montclair.
We saw quite a bit of them and they were always most supportive and helpful in publicizing the CAS. Their son is Michael Tree of the Guarneri Quartet. Correspondence: with CMH. Some letters by his wife Sada. Publications: Tutors in string playing 5 and assorted publishers' flyers to works by Applebaum one of the flyers is for joint publication with his wife, Sada. Applebaum, Samuel - Publications, A student of Herman Backhaus in Karlsruhe who went on with research of vibration patterns in violin plates and finished instruments, and published several papers, one of which is included here.
He was especially interested in the concept that certain parts of the violin top and back contributed to different tone ranges. Correspondence: with CMH Arns, Ulrich - Correspondence, B Language of Material: English. A fine cellist and an early proponent of the instruments of the viol family, who was especially interested in the renaissance, baroque, and transition instruments of the violin family.
He was fascinated with our Octet instruments and wanted CMH to make him a violino piccolo with five strings which did not happen.
Technical: From Strad, ? Worked in Germany for many years on the acoustics of the violin, first at Greifswald and later at the Technische Hochschule in Karlsruhe.
slysamlitu.gq His unique contribution was the first mapping of the vibrational modes of the arched top and back of the violin, vibrated with an automatic bowing device at main resonance frequencies. His most important conclusion was that a strong tendency exists among the best instruments for the inward and outward motions of the top and back plates to be in phase over a large area of the violin at some frequency near Hz. At lower frequencies he found far more subdivisions to occur.
Backhaus' pioneering work together with that of his student, Hermann Meinel, has provided investigators with much basic information. Backhaus, Hermann - Correspondence, Miscellaneous: 2 Obituary notice of Backhaus ; other miscellaneous biographical material.

Corbino of the Italian National Research Council, starting in , whose findings are contained in 65 papers. His primary connection to musical acoustics is his collaboration with G. Pasqualini on the first definitive study of wood for violins "Misura dell' attrito interno e della constanti elastiche del legno" which can be found in Benchmark Papers in Acoustics v 5, Dowden Hutchinson and Ross See Tech Summary.

Barton, Edwin - Technical, A research engineer-acoustician, originally in the Department of Speech at Stanford University, and since working at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who has done and continues to do analysis and synthesis of violin tones.
