Frank Howes

Frank Howes CBE (1891-1974) was President of the Royal Musical Association from 1947 until 1958.  He lectured in music history at the Royal College of Music for over thirty years, and in 1943 he succeeded H. C. Colles as chief music critic of The Times.  His publications include a study of William Byrd (1928), and works on the psychology of music, including The Borderland of Music and Psychology (1926) and Man, Mind and Music (1948).  His support for Vaughan Williams and Walton led him to produce monographs on each, and among his last major works were volumes on The English Musical Renaissance (1966) and The Folk Music of Britain - and Beyond (1970).

The Memorial Fund

The Frank Howes Memorial Fund was endowed to assist students, and is now applied to one of the Small Research Grants.
