Abstract:

Henry L. Cady, professor emeritus in music education and former chair of music department at the University of Delaware, Newark, with research partner and fellow Ohio State University colleague, Erwin H. Schneider, headed the Schneider-Cady USOE Project E-016, Evaluation and Synthesis of Research Studies Relating to Music Education, funded by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The project is a compilation of a majority of the theses, dissertations, and articles written between 1930 and 1962 on studies relating to music education. The collection includes an extensive bibliographic card file collection organized by categories such as "The Teacher," "The Student," The Teaching-Learning Process," "Higher Education," and subcategories such as "music education," "music therapy," "theory" and "musicology," in addition to correspondence with other music education scholars related to the Music Education Research Council (MERC), formed in the mid 1960s, of which Cady was project coordinator. MERC was formed in conjunction with Cady's second Department of Education project, USOE Project 6-13488, A Conference of Research in Music Education, for which the E-016 bibliography was expanded. The collection also includes copies of the final publications, Evaluation and Synthesis of Research Studies Relating to Music Education (1965), and Final Report: A Conference of Research in Music Education (1967).

Historical Note

Born in Manchester, N.H., Dr. Henry L. Cady graduated from Middlebury College with a B.A. in 1947. He received his M.A. from Teachers College, Columbia University in 1952. Dr. Cady was an instructor from 1952 until 1954 at National College in Kansas City, MO. From 1955 until 1962, he was professor and head of the music department at William Jewell College in Liberty, MO. Dr. Cady received his Ph. D. in music education from Kansas University in 1962. He taught at the Ohio State University from June 1962 until July 1975, where he and his fellow colleague, Erwin Schneider, completed their U.S. Department of Education study on previous research in music education. Cady then worked as a professor at the University of Delaware-Newark beginning in 1975, becoming chair of the music department and achieving emeritus status upon retirement in 1985. Cady's studies on the status of research in music education are a substantial contribution to the history of music education as an academic subject in higher education.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Henry L. Cady Papers cover the period from 1962 to 1978. The collection consists of professional and personal papers including published and unpublished writings, correspondence, reports, surveys, and a bibliographic card file related to Cadys work as a researcher for the Schneider-Cady USOE Project E-016, Evaluation and Synthesis of Research Studies Relating to Music Education (1965). USOE Project E-016 was a compilation of bibliographic citations for theses, dissertations, and articles written between 1930 and the 1970s on studies relating to music and music education. The bibliographic card file was started in 1962 and after a three-year research period, the initial project ended with 11,800 bibliographic citations. The second phase of the collection began in 1965 with the start of USOE Project 6-13488, A Conference on Research in Music Education, and the E-016 bibliography was expanded to include 17,000 citations.
