  • Ragtime: A Pernicious Evil and Enemy of True Art, by Leo Oehmler, The Musical Observer, Vol. 11, No. 1 (Sept. 1914) [ML1 M96]. A Florida State grad student contacted us to inquire about this article, which he said is a crucial source for his dissertation. Oehmler (1867-1930) was an American organist, composer, and teacher. His polemic is rooted in racism, and he traffics in dichotomies such as natural and artificial in making his case. He concludes with this: "Avaunt with ragtime rot! Let us purge America and the Divine Art of Music from this polluting nuisance." #ragtime #musicalobserver #leooehmler #racisminamerica #racisminmusic #syncope #syncopation #millsmusiclibrary
