Abstract:This study provides a comprehensive history of the band program at the Illinois Industrial University/University of Illinois between the years 1867 and 1908. In 1885 the University changed its name to the University of Illinois from the Illinois Industrial University. The University has been a leader in the field of bands, band music, and music education for well over a century. The history of its band program during the first 40 years of its existence is presented with great detail in the following four areas: (1) the leadership of the band during this time frame, (2) the role of the band, (3) the personnel of the band, and (4) the repertoire of the band. Specific attention is given to correcting discrepancies between known sources and filling gaps of missing information that previously existed. This study involved the time-consuming process of gathering even the smallest pieces of information about the program. This process is highly recommended for all future research of a historical nature and to confirm the histories of individual band programs across the United States.
