Biographical Note

John Duke was a distinguished composer, pianist, and teacher of piano. He is best known for his art-songs in English, which were composed between 1920 and his death in 1984. His works also include solo instrumental pieces, instrumental and vocal chamber music, choral and symphonic works, and music for the stage. He composed two operas ("Captain Lovelock," 1953; "The Sire de Maletroit," 1958), an operetta ("The Yankee Pedlar," 1962), a "musical fantasy for children" ("The Cat That Walked Himself": 1964), and music for numerous Smith College faculty shows and theatre department productions.

John Duke was born in Cumberland, Maryland, on July 30, 1899. He became interested in music through his mother, Matilda Hoffman Duke. "A music lover and a talented singer," she was Duke's first music teacher. At age 16 he won a three-year scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. There he studied piano with Harold Randolph and theory and composition with Gustav Strube.

In 1918, following a period of volunteer service in the army, Duke continued his music study in New York City with lessons in piano from Franklin Cannon and in composition from Howard Brockway and Bernard Wagenaar. In 1920 he made his New York piano debut in Aeolian Hall.

On December 22, 1922, he married Dorothy Macon, a writer. The couple often collaborated on musical works and on lecture-recitals. Dorothy Duke wrote the libretto for "The Sire de Meletroit," "The Yankee Pedlar," and "The Cat That Walked by Himself," as well as texts for several Smith College faculty shows.

In 1922 and 1923 Duke was editor of the American Piano Company Recording Labs. He made recordings for them and for the Duo-Art Company. His compositions were first published in 1923, when G. Schirmer, Inc., printed his first two songs, "I've Dreamed of Sunsets" and "Lullaby."

Duke's long affiliation with Smith College began in the fall of 1923, when he was appointed assistant professor of music. Duke taught piano and in the 1950s and 1960s offered a course in the literature of the piano. In 1938 he was made a full professor of music, a position he held until he was honored with the Henry Dike Sleeper Chair in 1960.

Duke was an active performer and lecturer throughout the Connecticut River Valley (and beyond), giving many recitals and lecture-recitals and teaching a number of University Extension Service of the Connecticut Valley courses, mainly in piano literature and pedagogy. He also wrote columns and reviewed concerts for the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

Duke spent his first sabbatical from Smith (1929-30) studying in Europe with Nadia Boulanger and Artur Schnabel. He was a member of the Yaddo Summer Music Colony in Saratoga Springs, New York, in 1936 and 1937, and he served as program chair for the Yaddo concert series of contemporary American chamber music in 1937. In 1941 Duke's "Carnival Overture" was given its premiere by the Boston Pops Orchestra. His 1944 sabbatical was spent in New York City, where he was chair of the National Association of American Composers and Conductors and arranged a series of four concerts of contemporary chamber music.

Duke's association with John Seagle and the Seagle Colony, the summer school for singers in Schroon Lake, New York, began in 1951, when his daughter Karen attended a session. From then until his death, Mr. Duke almost always made an annual visit to the colony. His operas, "Captain Lovelock" and "The Sire de Maletroit," were written for the Opera Guild at the colony and were first performed there. Duke wrote other pieces for the colony (e.g., "Lord, Bless This Food") and was often present for workshops or performances of his music.

John Duke was honored by this hometown of Cumberland, Maryland, when April 1, 1957, was declared "John Duke Day." Other honors included the American Society of Composers and Publishers Standard Award to composers, which he received for twenty-two consecutive years (1963-84). The Peabody Conservatory Alumni Association bestowed on him its Award for Distinguished Service in 1969.

John Duke retired from Smith College as professor emeritus in 1967. He remained active as a composer, writing 126 of his 265 catalogued songs after that time. He died in Northampton on October 26, 1984.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The John Duke Papers occupy 18 linear feet of shelving and consist of scores, correspondence, scrapbooks, writings, recordings, printed materials, and miscellaneous papers which document Duke's life and career. They are concentrated in the years following his appointment to the faculty of Smith College in 1923. There is very little from his youth and student days.

The scores of John Duke's compositions make up the most important portion of the papers. Included are copies of all of the 265 catalogued songs which constitute Duke's major output as a composer. All known mature Duke works are available in manuscript and/or final form. There are also a few scores of student works and some unfinished works, including the song he was composing at the time of his death.

There is good material for the study of John Duke's method and philosophy of composition. Manuscript notebooks include rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic sketches of a number of the works composed between 1944 and 1984. Duke's lectures and writings on the art-song, the drafts of outgoing correspondence, and letters from poets such as Archibald MacLeish, William Rose Benet, Mark Van Doren, and Richard Nickson give a clear picture of Duke's thinking about the musical form he loved best and about this choice of texts to set.

Duke's triple career (composer, teacher, pianist) is well documented. His career as a composer can be traced not only through the material above but also through correspondence from colleagues, friends, family, singers, and other musicians. Included are such prominent contemporaries as Roger Sessions, Aaron Copland, Walter Piston, Wayne Barlow, Sigmund Spaeth, Daniel Gregory Mason, Mack Harrell, Gladys Swarthout, Ross Lee Finney, Roy Harris, Arthur Fieldler, William Warfield, and Douglas Moore.

Correspondence from Duke's piano students attests to his lasting influence as a teacher. His devotion to teaching and to the problems of pedagogy is in evidence in that correspondence and in the texts of his lectures and writings on piano technique and literature.

Duke's career as a pianist is documented in correspondence from teachers, impresarios, piano companies, and supportive friends. The letters received before 1945, when he began to devote his time more exclusively to composing, clearly reflect the problems of an artist getting started. Duke's continued activity as a performing musician is well documented by scrapbooks and concert programs.

This finding aid has four appendices.

Contents List
Series I. SCORES
1921-1984, n.d.


This series is divided into four sections: Manuscript Scores; Transparencies; File Copies; and Scripts and Texts. Unless otherwise noted the scores are arranged within the sections in the following six categories designated by John Duke: Songs, Choral Works, Symphonic Works, Dramatic Works, Solo Pieces and Chamber Music, and Miscellaneous. Uncatalogued and unnumbered songs are pieces for solo voice and piano or organ which John Duke did not include in his Catalogue of Songs (Appendix I). The first section, Manuscript Scores, consists of penciled copies of Duke's compositions. Manuscript notebooks (1944-1984) are filed chronologically in the first three boxes. Unbound manuscript scores follow in boxes 4-7, arranged in Duke's six categories. There are manuscript versions of all but 13 of John Duke's 265 catalogued songs, most of his other works, and a few student compositions. John Duke made final copies of scores on Transparencies for purposes of reproduction. Included are all but 7 of his catalogued songs and many of his other works. File Copies are printed, mimeographed, or photocopied scores which contain corrections, fingerings, or performance notes in John Duke's hand. These copies were part of John Duke's file of scores to be used for performances and loans. Included are many of Duke's catalogued songs and most of his other works. Scripts and Texts consists of typescript, mimeograph, or photocopy versions of the libretti of two of Duke's dramatic works, "The Cat That Walked By Himself" and "The Yankee Pedlar," plus a number of texts for Smith College faculty shows.
