Natalie Curtis aborted a possible career as a concert pianist to study Native American music and languages, her major publication being The Indians’ Book (1907). After 1910 she took an active interest in developing music and music education for African Americans. In 1917 she married artist Paul Burlin. She was killed by an automobile in Paris while there to give a lecture in 1921. All the works shown were presented to her by the composers.
