2023 1-4955-1117-0
This is a biography of Kathi Meyer-Baer. "I first encountered Meyer-Baer while rummaging in the Rare Books and Manuscripts Room of the New York Public Library among the files of the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Foreign Scholars. This was an organization established in New York soon after the formation of a Nazi government in Germany to help secure academic positions in the United States for scholars dismissed on racial or political grounds from their posts in Germany. Among the hundreds considered for funding from the Emergency Committee during its twelve years of operation were thirty-eight musicians and music scholars, all but one of the men; the exception was Meyer-Baer." (Introduction) This book was originally published by Pendragon Press in 2012.
