Lowry, Ira Pate. "The Instrumental Music of the Indians of Robeson County, North Carolina." Thesis. Ohio State U, 1942.
Lowry visited Indian schools to record their music needs and accomplishments. This history, based partly on interviews, notes the first band (Clint Burns, 1905); early concerts; instrumental music in the schools; music at PSC; and Ella Deloria’s pageant. Lowry was long-time chairperson of PSU’s Music Department and a major benefactor of the school; for his obituary, see Robesonian 24 Aug. 1992: 1A.
