Wagner Conservatory of Music History Project

February 20: Mother, Melanie and I met with Truman State University Music Professor Jay Bulen and 2 of his Master's students, Ashley and Tim. Professor Bulen and his students are embarking on a history project on the Richard Wagner Conservatory of Music and Languages in Kirksville, Missouri. Mother's Mother (Lottie Lillian Hart, later Brenz) graduated from the Conservatory in 1909. We shared all we could find. More of this will be included in a later entry.

We are excited. If you have any information about the Richard Wagner Conservatory of Music and Languages, Kirksville, Missouri (established 1893) contact Jay Bulen at 660-785-4441 or

OK: Family members and others out there: What would you share? Even snippets can be very important clues.
