Olyve Jeter Haynes (1898-1984) and George Edmund Haynes (1881-1960) were married in 1955. George co-founded the National Urban League and served as its executive director from 1911 to 1918. The Urban League was a New York City-based civil rights group which advocated against racial discrimination. In more than one instance they sought to promote Black classical musicians. In another review by Donal Henehan (See Document 1 for a review of Walker-Slocum), Sanford Allen reflected on his life as the first Black member of The New York Philharmonic at the time. He wrote that “responding to heavy pressure from the Urban League, he auditioned for a regular Philharmonic position, and was accepted” (Donal Henehan, “Only Black in Philharmonic is Resigning After 15 Years,” The New York Times, 29 August 1977, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 Robert Melcher (1910-1983) was an Oberlin College music theory professor and graduate (Robert A. Melcher Papers Finding Guide, Oberlin College Archives, Oberlin College, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 Emil Danenberg (1917-1982) was hired to teach piano at Oberlin Conservatory as an instructor in 1944, and became a professor in 1960. He then served as Dean of the Conservatory, during the time of Walker-Slocum’s recollection in this interview (Emil C. Danenberg Presidential Papers Finding Guide, Oberlin College Archives, Oberlin College, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 David Boe (1936-present) taught organ at Oberlin Conservatory from 1962 to 2008. He also served as Dean of the Conservatory during his time, as he wrote Walker-Slocum’s tenure review (see Document 5).
 Walker-Slocum identified this chip on her shoulder in A Miraculous Life, as a series of racist remarks from her professor while she was an undergraduate at Oberlin. The eurythmics professor Inda Howland used to “yell across the room, ‘Walker, stick your tail in,’” which Walker-Slocum reminded her of when they met again at Oberlin at her Bicentennial Program reception. She felt she “had gotten rid of the ‘log’ that had sat on [her] shoulder all those years” (Frances Walker-Slocum, A Miraculous Life (Bloomington, Indiana: AuthorHouse, 2006), 144).
 Jacob “Jack” Radunsky (1909-1995) taught piano at Oberlin Conservatory from 1947 to 1976. He earned a praiseworthy national reputation while having total commitment to his students, much like Walker-Slocum (Jacob “Jack” Radunsky, Oberlin College Archives Biographical Sketch, Oberlin College, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 Garth Peacock (1928-2007) was an organ professor at Oberlin Conservatory from 1959 to 1991. He received his undergraduate degree from Oberlin in 1951 (Laurel Fuson, “Garson Peacock Passes Away,” The Oberlin Review, 13 October 2007, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 Lydia Frumkin (1947-present) is a former professor of piano at Oberlin Conservatory. She has toured and taught internationally, and now teaches at Washington Conservatory of Music (Washington Conservatory of Music Faculty, Source, accessed 15 July 2016).
 George Walker composed this piece in 1987 and dedicated it to Frances-Slocum. In an address honoring Walker, it was said that Walker dedicated many of his pieces to Walker-Slocum, and “she in turn has taught many of her brother’s compositions to her students. ‘But,’ she cautions, ‘his music is very difficult. I only taught it to very advanced and interested students’” (Some Welcome Remarks, With Attention to Our Special Guest, Dr. George Theophilus Walker,” George Theophilus Walker Former Student File, RG 28/2, Box 1075, O. C. A.).
 Guido of Arezzo (Guido d’Arezzo) (991/992 – after 1033) was an Italian music theorist, who invented staff notation.
 The program, “The Music of George Walker,” was given on 9 June 1991 in The Newark Museum. The performers included Chaminade String Quartet, Renay Farrer (soprano), Cyrus Stevens (violin), Colette Valentine (piano), and Frances Walker-Slocum (piano). They performed String Quartet, no. 1 (1946), Songs for Voice and Piano (text by Emily Dickinson) (1983), Sonata no. 2 for Piano (1957), Sonata no. 2 for Violin and Piano (1979), Songs for Voice and Piano, Sonata no. 1 for Piano (1953) (Programs of Non-Oberlin Recitals, Frances Walker-Slocum Papers, RG 30/222, Box 1, O. C. A.).
