Historical NoteReturn to Top

Although born in Paris, Idaho, 125 miles north of Salt Lake City in the colorful Bear Lake Valley, Arthur Shepherd has always been claimed by Utah as one of its most distinguished sons.

The younger generation would not remember his tremendous contributions to our local culture; oldsters will never forget what he did. The past three and one-half decades of his life were spent largely in Cleveland, where he became the most influential moving force in that city's musical development--as music critic for the Cleveland Press, assistant conductor of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, program annotator for the orchestra, concert pianist and chairman of Western Reserve University's first-rate music department.

In the latter post he exerted influence in the nation's national music organizations, particularly MTNA (Music Teachers National Assn.) and NASM (National Association of Schools of Music). And yet, it was in none of the aforementioned capacities that he made his most significant contributions--but rather, in the area of composition. He cut a tremendous swath, both nationally and internationally, as a composer. His works have been widely performed both in this country and abroad. Utah Symphony, under Maurice Abravanel, performed his "Horizons" during the 1952-53 season and his "Overture to a Drama" earlier.

Arthur Shepherd was cosmopolitan in outlook, a recognized figure in the music world; yet, at the same time, he loved his periodic visits to his "home" in Salt Lake City where his brothers Albert and Charles made such lasting contributions in the string and piano fields.

His "Overture to a Drama," composed in 1919, received four performances by the Cleveland Orchestra alone, the last being "illuminated by an impassioned performance under George Szell," according to the feature story in the April 1950 issue of Musical Quarterly.

Arthur Shepherd entered the New England Conservatory at the tender age of 12. There, for five years, he studied with Chadwick, Goetschius and others. Graduating from the conservatory with honors at 17, he returned to Salt Lake City where he remained during the next 11 years. Here he received his "boot" training as conductor of the old Salt Lake Theater Orchestra and the Salt Lake Symphony Orchestra, "grandfather" of the present-day Utah Symphony. During these years, too, his star as composer began its ascent. An "Overture Joyeuse" earned for him the initial Paderewski prize of $1,000 in 1902--a good-sized sum by present-day inflation standards.

In 1920, at the age of 40, he moved to Cleveland, remaining there until his death last week.

His best known works, "Triptych," the Second Piano Sonata, and "Horizons," Foundation award in 1928, received performances following its composition by the major orchestras of this country and by others as far off as Paris, Prague and Warsaw.

Upon retiring from his Western Reserve post in 1948, he was immediately signed for guest teaching at Columbia University. In 1952-53, at the invitation of Dr. Leroy Robertson, he accepted a similar short-term situation at the University of Utah. Dr. Robertson has written of Shepherd:

"I feel a great personal loss in the passing of Arthur Shepherd. As a boy I held him in high esteem as a composer, although I knew of him only by reputation. After our meeting in later years we became close friends."

"With Cyrus E. Dallin and Mahonri Young, two other prominent Utah artists of his generation, Arthur Shepherd has brought widespread respect and renown to our state."

Arthur Shepherd was born in 1880 and died in 1958.

(This biograhy was taken from a 1958 Salt Lake Tribune article written by Lowell Durham.)

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Arthur Shepherd papers (1892-2010) cover the period from Shepherd's entrance in the New England Conservatory of Music in 1892 at age twelve to his death in 1958. Ensuing correspondence relating to the transfer of his papers to the University of Utah and the processing of the papers covers the period to 1976. The major portion of the collection is a vast store of Shepherd's original manuscripts. Most of these manuscripts include the progression of the compositions from first pencil sketches to the final pen copies of scores and parts in the composer's own hand. A sizeable number of sketches and sketchbooks have been preserved. These are undated and mainly unidentified and some appear to be from an early period in his career. Subjects relating to his compositions such as lists, awards, poetry, text sources, critiques, recordings, etc., are part of the collection. Arthur Shepherd's teaching career at Case Western Reserve University is represented by sixteen class notebooks used in classes he taught in harmony, counterpoint, form analysis, music history, music appreciation, and church music. Lectures and lecture notes are also included. A large file of correspondence between Shepherd and many prominent musicians, instructors from New England Conservatory of Music, students, associates, and friends is incorporated into the papers. In addition there is correspondence relating to his professional activities as composer, conductor, and chairman of Case Western Reserve University Music Department. Another file contains family correspondence covering the period 1896-1958. A scrapbook, dating from 1893-1924, includes biographical data, concert programs, news clipping, and articles by and about Arthur Shepherd. Also included in the collection is a Xerox copy of an unpublished manuscript of a biography, "Arthur Shepherd," by Richard Newcomb Loucks. This was written after Loucks completed his dissertation "Arthur Shepherd" at the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, 1960. A large collection of concert programs dating from 1893 at the New England Conservatory of Music to a Memorial Concert at the University of Utah, 1974, cover the wide range of Arthur Shepherd's talents as musician, composer, conductor, and teacher.

Early in 1978 the papers relating to the Arthur Shepherd Composition Contest, a memorial to Arthur Shepherd, were added to the collection. These papers consist of the organizational materials, correspondence, lists of contestants and winners, concert programs and publicity for the ten-year period, 1960-1969, of the annual contest. Programs and writings were also added to the collection in the 1990s. The 2011 addition to the collection includes sheet music copyrighted by Daniel M. Martello in 2010.
