Thurlow Lieurance and Antonio La Hau

This is a photograph of Thurlow Lieurance, renown composer, and Antonio La Hau. Lieurance's musical career began as a bandsman with the 22nd Kansas Volunteer Regiment during the Spanish American War. Later he studied at the Cincinnati College of Music. Lieurance became fascinated with Native American music and instruments and that fascination led to innumerable compositions, including his best known piece, "By the Waters of Minnetonka," first recorded in 1914. From 1926 to 1945 he was Dean of Fine Arts at Wichita University (now Wichita State University) and took that school's music program to national prominence.
