Dr. Arthur
Dies at 73
Dr. Arthur E. Westbrook,
the man who "sold music to
the people of Nebraska" is
dead at the age of 73.
"Westbrook took a deep
personal interest in all stu
dents he came in contact
with and continued a volumi
nous correspondence with
them even after graduation.
His life was dedicated to the
students and music," said
Associate Professor of music
Dale B. Ganz.
Ganz termed Westbrook a
"tremendous worker" who
conducted numerous clinics,
choral and fine arts programs
throughout the state in addi
tion to sending faculty mem
bers out to interest high
school students in music and
the University. - '
Enrollment in the Univer
sity department of music in
creased nearly seven-fold
from about 35 or 40 when
Westbrook first came here in
1939 to a peak of nearly 250
in 1952 Garni! said.
Westbrook was appointed
director of the University
School of Fine Arts in 1939
and held the post for 13
years until his retirement in
1952. From then until 1955
he served as professor of
voice and as a choral direc
tor. The body is lying in state
today at Roper and Sons
Mortuary, 4300 O St. Memo
