In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

acknowledgments My research on the life of Charles Ives was supported by a 2011 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. I am extraordinarily grateful to the many musical scholars and performers who took the time to talk with me, share their ideas, and help me sort through mine. I owe a special thanks to Tom C. Owens, George Mason University School of Music; James Sinclair, executive editor, Charles Ives Society; Richard Boursy, archivist, Yale Music Library; Timothy W. Foley, twenty-sixth director, United States Marine Band; and Mary Davis, dean of graduate studies, Fashion Institute of Technology: I cannot imagine that anyone could have been more generous, kind, and patient than they were in answering my many questions, discussing the history of music in the twentieth century, and helping me find my way through the thickets of Ives’s music and life, as well as offering encouragement and support. I would also like to thank David Schiff, William Sharp, Wayne Shirley, Sethu Reddy, Donald Barnett, Jude Webre, and Jonathan Elkus for valuable discussions; Charles Ives Tyler and Sylvia Ryder Warren for sharing their memories of the Ives family; and the many archivists, librarians, and others without whose assistance this book would never have been possible: Richard Boursy, Emily Ferrigno, and Suzanne Lovejoy, Yale Music Library; Anne Rhodes, Yale Oral History of American Music project ; Jonathan Cross, AXA Equitable archives; Laura Smith, University of Connecticut Archives and Special Collections; AnnaLee Pauls, Princeton University Library; Michael Lotstein and Judith Schiff, Yale Manuscripts and Archives; Town Clerk’s Office, Redding, Connecticut; Karen Moses, Library of Congress Music Division; William Offhaus, State University of New York at Buffalo Archives; Katie Piascyk, New Haven Museum; and Stephanie Challener, Musical America.
