One-Time Music Teacher Is Dead
Hugo Leichtentritt '94, one of the world's most famous music historians, died Tuesday in an obscure Cambridge nursing home. News of the death of the 77-year-old musicologist did not reach his associates until last night.
After graduating from the College, Leichtentritt lived in Berlin. When Nazi pressure forced him to flee from Germany in 1933, he was invited to lecture at the University Music Department.
