Charles Leonhard (b. 1915) was a pivotal figure in music education history. His career bridges the gap between the singing classes of the 1920s and the aesthetic education of the 1990s. Heller synthesizes a large amount of information from primary sources, interviews, archival materials, photographs, and teaching materials. He treats Leonhard's youth, his career in public school music in Oklahoma, and his work at Illinois. An outstanding contribution to the study of American music and education and to 20th-century American social and cultural history.
George N. Heller is professor, music education and music therapy at the University of Kansas. He was the founding editor of The Bulletin of Historical Research in Music Education, 1980-99.
