Phillip T. YoungAuthor/Editor
...Phillip T. Young, member of the Board of Governors of the American Musical Instrument Society and editor of The Look of Music, the Vancouver Centennial Musical Instrument Collection Catalogue, has personally inspected more than three-quarters of these instruments in major museums as well as in private collections so s mall that they do not appear in even the most recent directories.
The combination of his
two short inventories (The Galpin Society Journal, 1967, 1978), intensified research, reader contributions, and the incorporation of other less-complete listings has enabled Prof. Young
to compile a research tool that is unequaled in thoroughness and the majority of which has not been previously available.
