Nathan Eakin (1932-2000) first began the Gaylord Music Library Necrology file as a card file in the mid-1980s. In 1991, the project moved to a word processing file and in 1995, became available as a web page. The column published in the Music Library Association’s journal, Notes, called the Necrology Index, is extracted from this Necrology file.
Since death notices often contain conflicting dates, ages, and name forms, all are reported. Alternate name spellings are listed in square brackets. Citations follow the data they have provided. (Inquiries concerning this information are welcome.)
