Emmett Ford (1914 - June 2009)
"Emmett M. Ford, son of Emmett Ford, who was custodian of the Englewood Grade and High Schools for twenty-five years, has made a deferred gift in the amount of $150,000 to the College of Fine Arts of Wichita State University for an Emmett M. Ford Piano Scholarship for students pursuing the study of piano.
In 1996, he was awarded Honorary Member in AMICA for his numerous significant
contributions to AMICA over many years, starting shortly after he joined in
1973. His is best remembered for his huge archives which live on within AMICA,
partly in AMICA Bulletins of the past, and currently in my possession awaiting
development of a Published Heritage Archiving initiative, which I'm planning.
His archives need to be digitally archived and made freely available to
researchers anywhere. - Terry Smyth, Editor, The AMICA Bulletin 2009.
