1912 Ingolf Dahl – German-born American composer, pianist, conductor and educator (d.1970); among his students, Michael Tilson Thomas, Morten Lauridsen and Lawrence Moss; Tilson Thomas said: "Dahl was an inspiring teacher; over and above the subject matter, he showed his students about the practical value of humanism. That is, how to let humanistic concerns infuse your daily existence."
