Information trouvée : décès 2004 : Jan LaRue, an expert on 18th-century music and an emeritus professor at New York University who compiled a colossal database of nearly 17,000 symphonic themes, died Sunday, the university announced. LaRue was born in Sumatra... After graduating from Harvard in 1940, where he was a class mate of Leonard Bernstein's, he received an M.F.A. from Princeton University in 1942 and taught at Wellesley College from 1942-43 before entering the Army and serving in the Pacific theater. Rising to the rank of captain, his time spent stationed on Okinawa led to some of the first investigations of native music there and the completion of one of the earliest American Ph.D. dissertations on an ethnomusicological subject, "Okinawan Classical Song."Larue returned to Wellesley to teach, and in 1957 joined the Department of Music at New York University, where he remained until his retirement in 1988.
