Bibliographic information

Biographical note At the time Dr. Kvam became interested in the Violin Octet he was the Head of the Music Department of Douglass College in New Brunswick, N.J. Early in his career he had done some work in violin acoustics in Europe. He was very much interested in the Octet instruments, particularly the baritone and tenor since he was a trained cellist. He was one of the referees in the first composer contest for the octet instruments and put on a concert using several of the winning pieces. (See photos in file)
