MOREHEAD RECITAL ENSEMBLE COMPLIMENT EVENT TO REMEMBER

Those anticipating the musical by Albert H. Morehead on the evening of April 25, at the Progress club room, were not disappointed.

Mr. Morehead possesses a tenor voice of pleasing quality and his interpretation is of the highest order.

The program seemingly selected with a view to satisfying every taste, fulfilled the mission and the social feature following, accompanied by a delicious refreshment created a delightful atmosphere of informality so often lacking in affairs of this nature.

Many friends enjoyed Mr. Morehead’s hospitality on this occasion which will always remain a pleasant memory.

Mr. Morehead’s recital was given in compliment to the members of the Ensemble club and their friends.

A. MOREHEAD POSSESSES LETTER WRITTEN BY THE LATE W. D. HOWELL, 1872

Albert Hodges Morehead, professor of voice culture at Baylor university, is the possessor of a book containing many relics, reminiscences and epistles of some of the prominent early celebrities. This book was compiled by his mother, Mrs. Lavinia Murdock Morehead and naturally is considered his most valuable possession.

Among these is a letter written by the late W. D. Howells, who was an intimate friend of the family. It is dated June 25, 1872, and was written from Cambridge, Mass. At this time Dr. Howells was editor of the Atlantic Monthly. The few lines written by Mr. Howells were in the nature of an invitation to the world peace jubilee which was held at Boston in 1872 at the close of the Civil War. One of the tickets is still in the possession of Mr. Morehead.

Among other letters is one sent to Mrs. Morehead by Edwin M. Stanton, dated 1863, written by him as secretary of war during the Civil War. Another of later date by President Hays written in 1878.

The most cherished possession, however, is a badge worn by Mr. Morehead’s father in 1844 at the nomination of Henry Clay at Baltimore. This contains a picture of Clay with an eagle and shield inscribed above. It is in a most remarkable state of preservation, all the colors and inscriptions being made as clear and distinct as though they were made in recent years.

SEAGLE, NOTED SINGER, IN CHAPEL TONIGHT

Baylor is exceedingly fortunate in having America’s greatest concert singer, Oscar Seagle, in her chapel today, and the Federated Women’s Clubs of Waco deserve the praise for bringing them here.

“Oscar Seagle rises head and shoulders above the crowd of concert aspirants.” This is the verdict of Henry E. Krehbiel, dean of the American critics.

The New York Sun says: “His judgment is of the highest kind. He is one of the best equipped and most delightful recital singers now before the public.”

Our own Professor Morehead lived in the same town with Oscar Seagle, in fact he sang baritone in the same quartette with Mr. Morehead at the Jewish synagogue in Chattanooga, Tenn. Mr. Seagle is a southerner, born and bred, and it is said that his interpretation of the southern songs is marvelous.

Prof. Frank says he considers him one of the very finest singers in America.

“Seagle’s skill is without flaw,” says the London Times.
