School History 1 he Louisville Conservatory of Music, founded by Frederic A. Cowles and James Wesley McClain, opened its doors to the public in September, 1915. with an enrollment of approximately one hundred and fifty students. The faculty was composed of local teachers, and the dormitory was on the third floor of the present administration building, where eleven stud¬ ents lived. The growth during the first year neces¬ sitated leasing property at Brook and Broadway for use as a dormitory. The faculty was increased, and the Departments of Languages and Dramatic Art were instituted. The Public School Music Depart¬ ment, which from the beginning proved an active De¬ partment of the Conservatory, enlarged its scope in the next two or three years. In eleven years the Louisville Conservatory has grown to be one of the largest schools of music in the country, and it is a Charter Member of the National Association of Schools of Music and Allied Arts. The National Musical Sororities having Chapters at the Conservatory are the Delta Omicron, Mu Phi Epsilon. Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Sigma Mu. Of the original faculty only Mr. Cowles and Mr. Letzler remain, but many artists have been added to the ever growing faculty. The future holds promise of great growth and wide influence and in September, 1927, the Conservatory will occupy its own new building.
