In his retirement year (2015-2016), Prof. Mark Slobin, who came to Wesleyan in 1971, contacted several decades’ worth of international students who had graduated with the M.A. or Ph.D. in composition and ethnomusicology. The early 1960s saw the first M.A., and the first Ph.D. Student graduated in 1971. Throughout the history of the department, students from other countries made up a significant percentage of those who passed through, and they gave it a distinctive character. Many went home and became scholars, teachers, and figures in music, and those people were the primary focus of the project. The interview was very informal and open-ended, as the transcripts show. The list of interviewees is necessarily selective, depending on availability and response. The interviews have been edited and approved.
