Summary
William Henry Pommer (1851-1937) was an American musician born in St. Louis and who received his musical training there and in Leipzig and Vienna. He was the Supervisor of Music for the St. Louis Public School System, and later was on the faculties of Washington University (Smith Academy preparatory school), Christian College (Columbia, Missouri), and the University of Missouri (Columbia). He was a prolific composer whose catalogue of compositions includes 495 works, of which 123 were published. The first part of the dissertation details Pommer's life and musical career, documenting his place in the profession as performer (pianist and conductor), composer, and educator. Correspondence and newspaper articles from the period, held by the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis and the State Historical Society of Missouri in Columbia, validate the high standing which Pommer achieved in his lifetime in the region. The extensive Appendixes to the document include a complete catalogue of the compositions created from the manuscripts and published holdings in the MHS collection. (Almost all of Pommer's music manuscripts and many copies of the published works exist in the collection.) The catalogue is organized by genre, including for each composition the opus number, manuscript date, publisher, publication date, poet or librettist, medium, collection name, and location of the manuscript within the MHS collection. Additional Appendixes provide cross-listings of the catalogue for the poets and librettists, publishers, dedications, opus numbers, and collections. The final two Appendixes contain a chronology of the important events in Pommer's life and selected photographs of Pommer. Although Pommer is not currently known by the profession, his contribution in his own lifetime was significant. This document shows the depth of a career, spanning more than six decades, highly visible in its own time, yet nearly forgotten by later generations
