Abstract:

Reginald R. Gerig (1919- ) is Professor of Piano Emeritus at Wheaton College and a music researcher, perhaps best known for writing Famous Pianists and Their Techniques. Gerig also taught piano at both Wheaton College and Eastman School of Music and gave many lectures on piano technique at places such as Brigham Young University Summer Piano Festival, Peabody Conservatory, and the National Conference on Piano Pedagogy. The collection contains manuscripts, research notebooks, articles, lectures, correspondence, and other miscellaneous materials related to Gerigs career as a music researcher and professor, his involvement in the American Liszt Society and the Illinois State Music Teachers Association, and his relationships with various publishers, authors, and pianists, including Otto Ortmann, Carola Grindea, and Irwin Freundlich.
