Biographical Note

Born in Granville, NY, Helen Margaret Hewitt was a pioneering music historian who is perhaps best known for her editions of Ottaviano Petrucci's chanson compendia Harmonices musices odhecaton A, and Canti B. A graduate of numerous prestigious institutions including Vassar, Columbia, the Union Theological Seminary, and Harvard, Hewitt studied organ with Charle-Marie Widor, harmony with Nadia Boulangier, and studied under Heinrich Besseler at the University of Heidelberg.

Hewitt  published numerous articles, and compiled the first four editions of Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology. While on the North Texas music faculty from 1942 until 1969, she taught classes and served as an adviser or committee member on many theses and dissertations, and remained active in guiding the maintenance and upgrading of pipe organ facilities on campus.

In addition to her distinguished career, Dr. Hewitt was a devoted owner of persian cats, and kept up cordial correspondence with friends and colleagues over many decades, and across continents.
