The celebrated organist and music professor signs this slip of paper
Signature: "Hugh P. Allen", in black ink, 4¼x2½. December 23 printed near the top of the piece of paper. Hugh Percy Allen (1869-1946) was named Director of the Royal College of Music in 1918, the same year he became a professor of music at Oxford. He tripled the size of the student body at the RCM, and modernized the curriculum at both institutions. He also conducted the Royal Choral Society and the Royal Philharmonic Society. In 1946, when he died after being hit by a motorcycle, the London Times called Allen the "acknowledged but unofficial head of the music profession in this country." Lightly toned and creased. Text from the Shakespeare play The Merchant of Venice on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
