He married MARY ARCHER GLASS, daughter of JAMES CARTER GLASS and AURELIA McDEARMAN CALDWELL. She was born 29 Mar 1895 in Lynchburg, Virginia, and died 19 Dec 1978 in Danville, Virginia.


Notes for JOHN GUERRANT BOATWRIGHT:

John Guerrant Boatwright Passport Photo John graduated from Washington and Lee University; he married Mary Archer Glass, who was the daughter of Senator Carter Glass; he was President and Director of Gibrell Brothers Tobacco Company; he was a member of and a Vestryman of Episcopal Church of the Epiphany; he was a Director of the First National Bank of Danville; and his home was known as Dan's Hill.

The Boatwrights' long interest in cultural and historic preservation was evidenced also by their careful restoration, beginning in the 1930s, of the house and gardens at Dan's Hill. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this antebellum landmark at the western edge of the city was, for a generation, the home also to the Boatwrights' son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn B. Updike, Jr.

Dan's Hill was built around 1833 for Robert and Catherine Ann Pannill Wilson. Mrs. Wilson grew up at Green Hill (below), which has a remarkably similar appearance to Dan's Hill.

It is thought that Dan's Hill may have been designed and built by James Dejarnett, an area master builder. Pillared porticos grace the front and rear of the home. The interior features Federal woodwork, marble mantels, ornamental plasterwork ceilings, arched doorways between the two drawing rooms, and an elliptical arch in the entrance hall.



Dan's Hill

Dan's Hill is listed on the Virginia Historical Register and National Register of Historic Places. It has been owned by two families, the Wilsons and the Boatwrights/Updikes, both of whom have taken extraordinary care of the house and grounds. The property is located along the north bank of the Dan River on the west side of Danville, in the Birnam Wood area.

The residence and numerous outbuildings were in course of construction for a period of about eight years, and were completed in 1833. The estate, situated about five miles from Danville on the Dan River, comprises an area of approximately sixteen hundred acres.

Dan's Hill Until recently the estate was owned by Robert Wilson James, being of the fifth generation in direct descent to have lived here. Within the last few years this property came into the possession of Mr. John Boatwright.

Several generations of the Boatwright family have left their mark on this community, including the Danville Museum. At the turn of the 20th century, Mr. H. Lee Boatwright was part of the triumvirate of astute businessmen, along with Mr. R. L. Dibrell and Mr. A. B. Carrington, who made Dibrell Brothers, now DIMON, Inc., famous internationally as one of the world's leading tobacco leaf dealers. The family's identity with this firm continued with his son, Mr. John G. Boatwright. His marriage just after World War I to Mary Archer Glass of Lynchburg, Virginia, secured the couple's influence in Danville and around the state. Mrs. Boatwright- a newspaper publisher with Carter Glass & Sons Publishers, founded by her father Sen. Carter Glass- was associated with many cultural, educational and business endeavors throughout the commonwealth. She and her family were active members of the Danville Museum since its founding in 1973.

The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History is located in the Sutherlin Mansion on Millionaires Row in Danville, Virginia. Built in 1859 for a leading citizen, Major William T. Sutherlin, the house has become well known as the temporary residence, April 3-10, 1865, of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. In this house, Davis authored his last official proclamation as president of the Confederacy. The government remained in Danville until receiving the news of Lee's surrender at Appomattox on April 10. Largely because of events documented in this house during the Confederacy's final week, Danville has become known as the "Last Capital of the Confederacy."

Danville Museum - Sutherlin Mansion Danville Museum - Sutherlin Mansion At the time of its construction, the home of the Sutherlins was considered the "grandest" house in Danville. It was situated on four acres of land with outbuildings of a kitchen, a servants' quarters, a carriage house, greenhouse, gardens, and stable. By 1912 the acreage had been reduced to approximately one and the outbuildings had perished. Wings were added to the main building in 1934 and 1950. The site has been designated as a Virginia Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The late Howard Boatwright was inspired and mentored by Paul Hindemith at Yale University during the 1940's. Widely traveled and greatly respected he was asked to become the Dean of the School of Music at Syracuse University in 1964. In his words: "A change from New Haven to Syracuse brought a change also in the motivations for composing....A result of this change of environment was that I decided I had to come to grips with fully chromatic music not relying on tonal functions for its clarity of form and expression."

The cause was heart failure, said John Harvith, a spokesman for Syracuse University, where Mr. Boatwright was the dean of the music school from 1964 to 1971, before becoming a professor of composition and theory at the university.

Mr. Boatwright's works were often rigorously chromatic, but by adhering to traditional classical structures and by using rugged harmonies to support arching, shapely themes, he invariably created pieces with an appealing clarity, directness and emotional resonance. Recordings of several of his works, most notably the vital String Quartet No. 2 (1975), have been released by CRI Records, and the label recently reissued them on a CD compilation (CRI 775).

He published about 100 works, including a Symphony (1976), Variations for Small Orchestra (1949), a Serenade for Strings and Winds (1952), a Clarinet Sonata (1980), about 20 choral works and 50 songs.

He intended to become a violinist not a composer but began writing music in 1941 as a way to court Helen Strassburger, a soprano. They married in 1943 and performed and recorded new music, standard repertory and early music together for many years. The first songs he wrote for his wife were not performed until November, when she sang them in a recital in Syracuse.

Mr. Boatwright was born in Newport News, Va., and began studying the violin when he was 10. He worked with a single teacher, Israel Feldman, until 1942, when Mr. Boatwright played a New York debut recital at Town Hall. The next year, he joined the faculty of the University of Texas in Austin, and in 1946 he went to Yale University to study composition with Paul Hindemith.

After Mr. Boatwright completed his master's degree, Hindemith recommended him for a faculty position at Yale, which he held until 1964. Mr. Boatwright also conducted the Yale Symphony, was concertmaster of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra and first violinist of the Yale String Quartet. As a member of Hindemith's Collegium Musicum, he took up early instruments for performances of Baroque works, and as the director of music at St. Thomas Church in New Haven he presented programs of Baroque rarities.

By the time he left Yale to become dean of the Syracuse University School of Music in 1964, Mr. Boatwright had published his "Introduction to the Theory of Music" (1956) and two books on Indian music, "Indian Classical Music and the Western Listener" and "A Handbook on Staff Notation for Indian Music," that he wrote after a year in Bombay as a Fulbright lecturer. His most recent book was the 1994 "Chromaticism: Theory and Practice."

In Syracuse Mr. Boatwright transformed the music school, making it an important center of composition and new-music performance by presenting festivals and establishing an electronic music studio. He also introduced non-Western music to the curriculum and expanded its earlymusic programs by acquiring collections of antique instruments. From 1969 to 1988, when he stopped teaching, he also directed a summer music program in Switzerland.

Besides his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Alice Karth Boatwright of San Francisco; two sons, Howard 3d, of Fayetteville, N.Y., and David Alexander, of Northampton, Mass., and a brother, Paul Mabry Boatwright, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Helena Johanna Strassburger Boatwright Pioneering soprano Helen Boatwright dies at 94 (AP)

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Soprano soloist Helen Boatwright, who championed the performance of American song and recorded the first full-length album of songs by composer Charles Ives, has died.

Boatwright celebrated her 94th birthday on Nov. 17. Her family said she was still teaching until three weeks before her death Wednesday, and the final piece of music she listened to was the last soprano aria of Handel's "Messiah."

Boatwright was celebrated for singing the music of American composers such as Ives and her husband, Howard Boatwright. In 1954, she became the first person to record a full-length album of Ives' songs, "24 Songs" with pianist John Kirkpatrick. She also studied with composer Normand Lockwood, who helped shape her philosophy that singers had a responsibility to perform and promote contemporary music.

Born Helena Johanna Strassburger in 1916, she was the youngest of six children in a large music-loving German family from Sheboygan, Wis. She earned bachelor's and master's degrees in music from Oberlin College.

Her operatic debut was as Anna in an English-language production of Otto Nicolai's "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor" at Tanglewood in Massachusetts. During her career, she worked with luminaries in the world of music, including conductors Leopold Stokowski, Erich Leinsdorf, Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta. She also performed with Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood in the early 1940s, sang opposite tenor Mario Lanza in his operatic stage debut, and performed for President John F. Kennedy in the East Room of the White House in 1963.

Boatwright met her future husband, violinist Howard Boatwright, in an elevator in Los Angeles in 1941 when they were to perform in a National Federation of Music Clubs competition. They married two years later and performed together throughout their lives in the United States, Mexico, Europe, and India. Many of her husband's compositions for voice were written for her.

In 1964, Howard Boatwright became the dean of the Syracuse University School of Music, and in 1969 the couple established a university-sponsored summer program, L'Ecole Hindemith in Vevey, Switzerland, where they taught and performed every summer until 1988. He died in 1999.

Helen Boatwright taught at Syracuse University, Connecticut College, was a professor of voice at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester from 1972-79, and served as a guest professor at Cornell University and the Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University.

In 2003, Syracuse University presented Boatwright with an honorary doctor of music degree.

Even in her 90s, Boatwright continued to learn new music. For her 90th birthday in 2006, she celebrated with a solo concert at a local church.

Boatwright is survived by two sons and a daughter. The funeral will be held Dec. 8 at at St. David's Episcopal Church in DeWitt, a Syracuse suburb.


Helena Johanna Strassburger Boatwright Soprano Helen Boatwright, who performed at the White House, dies at 94
Published: Wednesday, December 01, 2010, 6:17 PM

Helen Boatwright, who had a distinguished career as an oratorio and orchestral soloist, died Wednesday in the Iroquois Nursing Home near Jamesville. She had celebrated her 94th birthday Nov. 17.

Her health had deteriorated after she fell at her Fayetteville home in November, said Howard Leake Boatwright III (known as “Lea”), the oldest of three children of Helen and Howard Boatwright.

He was with his mother when she died. During her last moments, he said, she was listening to the last soprano aria of Handel’s “The Messiah.”

Boatwright, a soprano, was celebrated for singing the music of American composers, among them Charles Ives, as well as her husband.. In 1954, she became the first person to record the songs of Ives, in the album “24 Songs,” with pianist John Kirkpatrick (Overtone Records).

During her career, she worked with luminaries in the world of music, such as conductors Leopold Stokowski, Erich Leinsdorf, Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta.

She performed with the youthful Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood Music Festival in Massachusetts in the early 1940s and sang with the then little-known tenor Mario Lanza.

She performed for President John F. Kennedy in the East Room of the White House in 1963.

Boatwright was part of a power couple in the music world. She met her future husband, Howard Boatwright, in an elevator in Los Angeles in 1941 when they were to perform in a National Federation of Music Clubs competition. They married in 1943.

Howard was a violinist, composer and author. He was on the faculty of Yale before becoming dean of Syracuse University’s School of Music, a post he held from 1964 to 1971; he taught theory and composition at SU until 1984.

Boatwright was born Helen Strassburger in 1916 in Sheboygan, Wis. She was the youngest of Gustav and Amalie Strassburger’s six children. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music from Oberlin College in Ohio.

Local soprano Neva Pilgrim, a co-founder of the Society for New Music, has known Helen Boatwright since she was a student of Howard Boatwright in 1960 at Yale.

She described Helen Boatwright as having a “beautiful pure, true voice.”

Pilgrim said Boatwright had excellent diction. “It meant a lot to her that people understand the words.”

Boatwright also was an expressive singer whether she was performing early, Renaissance or Baroque music. “She suited the style,” said Pilgrim. “She was aware of the style, so it didn’t all sound the same, which is true of any great artist.”

Pilgrim remembers her friend as a “warm, gracious person. She had a lot of class.”

Boatwright was devoted to her vocal students, said Pilgrim. “Not all wonderful performers can be wonderful teachers,” she said.

As a teenager, the soprano Eileen Strempel was a student of Boatwright.

She considers her one-time teacher her “musical mom.”

“It was because of her I went into music,” said Strempel, a singer and associate professor in the department of art and music histories at SU. She said Boatwright introduced her to works by composers from Bach to Ives and everything in between.

Strempel was impressed that Boatwright, in her 90s, continued to learn new music.

“She was always inquisitive and sometimes cantankerous about it. Sometimes opinionated, but she always cared,” Strempel said.

For her 90th birthday in 2006, Boatwright celebrated with a solo concert at St. David’s Church in DeWitt. She sang works of American composers, including local composers Marc Mellits and Edward Ruchalski.

Ruchalski was struck by Boatwright’s voice and musicianship. “She always did daring material. It was because she was intelligent as a musician. She really could analyze the music. She knew how music worked. And you really need to know that if you’re going to sing new music.”

He composed two pieces for Boatwright: “Not Knowing When ... ,” which she performed at her 90th birthday concert in 2006, and “Vocalise,” which she sang for her 92nd birthday.

Mellits also composed “Large Man Looms” for Boatwright’s 90th birthday concert. For him, Boatwright’s smile is indelible. “She was always smiling.”

“She would float into a room. I don’t think she ever walked,” he said.

Two years later, she again turned her birthday celebration into a concert, with an afternoon of German lieder and American songs at the Everson Museum of Art.

During the 55 years Helen and Howard Boatwright were married, the couple directed the “Ecole Hindemith,” an SU summer music program in Switzerland, for 20 years. In 1989, they also directed a summer vocal program at the Seagle Colony in the Adirondack community of Schroon Lake.

For many years, Boatwright served on the board of Civic Morning Musicals and attended most concerts of Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music, Syracuse Opera and the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra.

In 2003, SU presented Boatwright with an honorary doctor of music degree.

Besides her son Lea, of Fayetteville, her survivors include a daughter, Alice K. Boatwright, of Paris, and another son, David, of Northampton, Mass.

The family is still finalizing funeral arrangements.

Helen Boatwright, Celebrated Soprano, Dies at 94
The New York Times
By Margalit Fox
Published December 4, 2010

Helen Boatwright, an American soprano renowned for her interpretations of Charles Ives, died on Wednesday in Jamesville, N.Y., outside Syracuse. She was 94 and had lived nearby in Fayetteville, N.Y.

Her son Howard confirmed the death.

A concert and oratorio singer who performed in public until she was in her 90s, Mrs. Boatwright was known for her pure, unfussy sound; impeccable diction; and thoughtful, sensitive interpretations. These attributes made her well suited for early music and contemporary works, and throughout her career she sang both, to favorable notices.

Mrs. Boatwright gave the world premiere performances of some of Ives’s songs and, with the pianist John Kirkpatrick, made the first extensive recording of his songs. The album, originally titled “Twenty-Four Songs,” was first released in 1954 on the Overtone label.

At the other end of the historical continuum, Mrs. Boatwright appeared as a soloist with many of the country’s best-known early-music groups, including the Yale Collegium Musicum, founded by the eminent composer Paul Hindemith, and the Cantata Singers in New York.

Among the conductors with whom she performed are Leopold Stokowski, Erich Leinsdorf, Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta.

Mrs. Boatwright’s work took her to many of the country’s best-known concert halls as well as to the White House, where she sang for President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

She also taught at Syracuse University, the Eastman School of Music, the Peabody Conservatory of Music and elsewhere.

Helena Johanna Strassburger, known as Helen, was born on Nov. 17, 1916, in Sheboygan, Wis. She was the youngest of six children in a family of gifted amateur singers; Bach chorales in four-part harmony were sung nightly around the dinner table.

She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music from the Oberlin College Conservatory. In 1942, while she was a graduate student, she sang at Tanglewood in a production of Otto Nicolai’s opera “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” opposite a young tenor named Mario Lanza in his operatic debut.

In 1943, she married Howard Leake Boatwright Jr., a violinist and composer. In the decades that followed, the couple performed together in many recitals, and Mrs. Boatwright often sang songs by her husband, written for her.

Mrs. Boatwright, who also appeared frequently in joint recitals with other singers, did not make her New York solo recital debut until 1967, when she performed Hindemith’s song cycle “Das Marienleben“ at Town Hall.

Reviewing the concert in The New York Times, Raymond Ericson wrote that Mrs. Boatwright “sang the cycle as she has other music, with a total submersion of her own personality in the work.” He added: “She has a voice of rare purity, and she sings phrases with comparable clarity and firm outline.”

Mrs. Boatwright’s husband died in 1999. Besides her son, Howard Leake III, known as Lea, she is survived by another son, David Alexander, and a daughter, Alice Karth Boatwright.

If the concert singing Mrs. Boatwright favored has less marquee value than opera, which she performed on occasion, then that, she made unequivocally clear, was fine with her.

“I sing opera, but I am a musician,” she told The Sheboygan Press in 2004. “I teach too many crummy kids who think they’ve got to be opera singers. Opera is such a teeny tiny part in the world of music. I don’t want to be called an opera singer.”


City native, renowned soprano Helen Boatwright dies at 94
Sheboygan Press – December 3, 2010

Renowned soprano and Sheboygan native Helen Boatwright, who performed with some of the last century's greatest conductors and before heads of state, died just days after turning 94.

Her family said she was still teaching just three weeks before her death and reported the last piece of music she listened to was the last soprano aria of Handel's "The Messiah," a piece she performed hundreds of times in her career and which she first learned as a student at Lakeland College.

Born Helena Johanna Strassburger in 1916, she was the youngest of six children in a large music-loving German family from Sheboygan.

Her father, G.A. Strassburger, co-owned the Northfield Furniture Co.

She attended Lakeland College from 1933-35, when it was known as Mission House College, before transferring to Oberlin College in Ohio, where she earned bachelor's and master's degrees in music.

She celebrated her 94th birthday on Nov. 17. She died Wednesday.

Boatwright was celebrated for singing the music of American composers such as Charles Ives and her husband, Howard Boatwright. In 1954, she became the first person to record a full-length album of Ives' songs, "24 Songs" with pianist John Kirkpatrick. She also studied with composer Normand Lockwood, who helped shape her philosophy that singers had a responsibility to perform and promote contemporary music.

Her operatic debut was as Anna in an English-language production of Otto Nicolai's "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor" at Tanglewood in Massachusetts.

During her career, Boatwright worked with luminaries in the world of music, including conductors Leopold Stokowski, Erich Leinsdorf, Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta. She also performed with Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood in the early 1940s, sang opposite tenor Mario Lanza in his operatic stage debut, and performed for President John F. Kennedy in the East Room of the White House in 1963 and for foreign royalty.

Boatwright returned to Sheboygan in 1963 to perform a highly anticipated concert of songs at Urban Junior High School as part of Sheboygan's Civic Music Series. She also performed at Lakeland in 1968.

In January 2004 she conducted a master class at Lakeland and spoke during a performance by the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra on a program that included works by Ives.

In an interview with The Sheboygan Press during that visit, she asked not to be referred to as an opera singer, but as a musician.

"I sing opera, but I am a musician," she told reporter Janet Ortegon.

"I teach too many crummy kids who think they've got to be opera singers. Opera is such a teeny tiny part in the world of music. I don't want to be called an opera singer."

She told the Press she loved Sheboygan growing up here, "but I had to get out of there. I had to get a musical education."

Boatwright maintained a close connection to Lakeland College throughout her life.

"She often wrote letters to the college's president in which she recalled her memories of her time on campus," Lakeland spokesman David Gallianetti said in an e-mail.

A scholarship for music students in Boatwright's name was established in 1997, and in 2003 she donated her personal music library to Lakeland.

"We use her gift quite often," Janet Herrick, Lakeland professor of music and director of the college's choirs, said in a press release.

"Her marked scores from her personal performances are invaluable."

In 1982, Boatwright received the Lakeland College Alumni Association's alumni award for professional achievement, and she is a member of the Lakeland College Fine Arts Gallery of Distinction.

Boatwright married violinist Howard Boatwright in 1943. They performed together throughout their lives.

In 1964, Howard Boatwright became the dean of the Syracuse University School of Music, and in 1969 the couple established a university-sponsored summer program, L'Ecole Hindemith in Vevey, Switzerland, where they taught and performed every summer until 1988. He died in 1999.

Notes for HANNAH BARNETT CAMPBELL:

NEWPORT NEWS — Hannah Barnett Campbell Boatwright, (Mrs. Wesley Alexander Boatwright) died Thursday, June 2, 2011, in her sleep, at her residence in Newport News. She was 88 years old and had been living at the Chesapeake Retirement Community since 2003.

Mrs. Boatwright was the wife of the late Dr. Wesley Alexander Boatwright and the only daughter of the Rev. Lloyd Cook Campbell and his wife, Archie Pauline Blain Campbell. Mrs. Boatwright was born Nov. 25, 1922, in Fayetteville, N.C., where her father was the minister of the Presbyterian Church in Fountain, N.C.

Mrs. Boatwright moved to Staunton, after her father's death in 1927, and grew up there. She attended her first grade of school at Mary Baldwin Seminary, which later became Mary Baldwin College. She later returned and graduated from Mary Baldwin College in 1942, with a four-year B.A. degree in religion and a minor in English.

For two years after college, she taught school at Short Pump near Richmond and then she accepted a position as a copy and proofreader in Richmond at the Board of Christian Education of the Presbyterian Church. She returned to Staunton in 1948 and accepted a position at Mary Baldwin College as secretary to the president and to the Dean of the College. She continued in this position for seven years and then was made the Alumnae Secretary. As part of her responsibilities, she traveled to Norfolk and Newport News every year to attend College Days and talk with high school students about Mary Baldwin College.

In the fall of 1960, an alumnae friend and Peninsula resident, Emma Fitzhugh, introduced her to her future husband, Dr. Wesley Alexander Boatwright, a local dentist and native of the Peninsula. They were married on Oct. 21, 1961, at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Richmond.

Residing in the Hidenwood area of Newport News, Mrs. Boatwright was an active member of Hidenwood Presbyterian Church, where she taught Sunday school and sang in the choir for over 40 years.
