Biographical/Historical Information

John Henry Powell was born on September 6, 1882 to John Henry and Rebecca Leigh Powell. His father was the principal of the Richmond Female Seminary for twenty-six years. Powell was born with musical aptitude and was reported to be singing altos as a baby and writing compositions at age four. He studied music under his sister, Mrs. Smith Brockenbrough, F. C. Hahr, and after graduating from the University of Virginia in 1901, went to Berlin to study under Leschetizky. He also studied composition from Novratil, while he was still in Berlin.

His professional debut as a pianist was in Vienna in 1906. He performed in Berlin in December 1907, Paris in April 1908, and London in May 1908. He went on European tours in 1910 and 1914. He also performed in New York in 1913. His first American tour was in 1916. He also went on a European tour with Walter Damrosch and the New York Symphony Orchestra, playing his own composition, "Rhapsodie Negre," in 1920. In 1928 he was on a European and British tour which was supported by the United States government in an effort to improve relations with Britain.

While still performing concerts, Powell spent fifteen years [1932 to 1947] composing his magnum opus, "Symphony in A" which was successfully played in 1947. John Powell was managed by the National Broadcasting Artist's Service in New York. He married Louise Burleigh, a playwright and artist in her own right in 1928. Powell also taught music at Denver College and was president of the Virginia Music Federation. He also taught piano lessons, gave advice to numerous musicians and composers and mentored Annabel Morris Buchanan, the president of the National Music Federation. He was an honorary member of Phi Beta Kappa, Socit Astronomique de France, and the American Institute of Arts and Letters.

Some of Powell's musical works are "Sonata Virginianesque,""Sonata A Flat,""Sonate Noble,""Rhapsodie Negre,""Natchez-On-the-Hill,""Variations and Double-Fugue;""Overture: In Old Virginia." Folksongs of John Powell include "At the Fair,""Hoochee-Coochee Dance,""Circassian Beauty,""Merry-go-round,""Clowns,""Snake-Charmer,""Banjo-Picker,""In the Hammock,""Dirge,""From a Loved Past," and "In the South."

John Powell was a proud Virginian, a southerner and a great pianist who traveled all over the world performing his music. He was passionate about the preservation of folk music and he felt that the music was a genuine remnant of Anglo-Saxon culture. As a boy he was taught that Anglo-Saxons are not musicians and he was determined to prove this untrue by uncovering folk music and ballads belonging to Anglo-Saxons. He also spent his life trying to preserve America as a pure Anglo-Saxon society and was considered the founding father of racial integrity legislation in Virginia. He met with politicians, gave speeches, and proposed ideas for preserving the white race in America.

His work in eugenics began in the early 1920s and he supported racial integrity legislation that passed through the General Assembly of Virginia in 1926. He continued to propose amendments to the legislation and to encourage other states to follow Virginia's racial integrity laws. He promoted Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America and wrote a book, Mongrels in Virginia which expresses his views concerning the importance of keeping the races separate. He worked closely with Earnest Sevier Cox, Madison Grant, Dr. Walter Ashby Plecker, Lothrop Stoddard, H. Norton Mason, Marcus Garvey, and many others in an effort to preserve the white race in America. He edited the writings of his colleagues and had a close relationship with The Richmond-Times-Dispatch. The United States Congress supported equal Constitutional rights for all citizens and Powell's efforts were defeated. Powell died in Richmond, Virginia in 1963, a few years after his wife, Louise Burleigh Powell, had passed away.

Scope and Content

The papers consist chiefly of the correspondence of John Powell, a world-renowned pianist and composer who lived in Richmond and Charlottesville, Virginia from his birth in 1882 until his death in 1963. The collection consists of ca.15,025 items, 45 Hollinger boxes, and 225 linear feet. The correspondence includes letters to John and his wife, Louise Burleigh Powell from 1908 to 1963. There are personal letters to friends in the United States, Germany, Austria, England, and France as well as professional correspondence with music agents and composers in the United States and England. Some of the correspondents are Gamaliel Bradford, Leander January de Bekker, Annabel Morris Buchanan, Harry Flood Byrd, Jr., James Branch Cabell; Joseph Conrad, Francis Warrington Dawson, Lord Dunsany, Mary Johnston, Daniel Gregory Mason, John Lloyd Newcomb; Walter Ashby Plecker, Katherine (Kitty) Buckley Powell, Amelie Rives, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Edward Reilly Stettinius, Jr., Claude Augustus Swanson, and Winston Wilkinson.

Most of the correspondence relates to the provisions needed to give concerts and negotiations between commercial music agents and music clubs. Correspondence also focuses on the discovery of folk songs, requests for Powell to act as a judge in musical contests and Powell's work with many Universities to increase the understanding of folk music. There is also information about Powell's efforts to set up a Music Department at the University of Virginia and a Silver Jubilee concert at Carnegie Hall where the proceeds of Powell's concert are to be donated to the University of Virginia Library for the purchase of letters by Thomas Jefferson and [Joseph] Cabell. There is also a set of stamps from the Charlottesville Apple Festival included in the correspondence from 1953. (Box 18, folder 7)

In addition to correspondence, there are manuscripts relating to John Powell, including articles, and course materials on the history of folk music. He promoted courses on folk music and gave performances to local music clubs all over the country in an attempt to educate the public about this type of music. There are also piano works, such as "Dirge," a piano duet by Powell, op. 26, notes about programs, musical scores, reviews of musical compositions, and speeches.

Included in the manuscripts of this collection is a civil war account that was given to John Powell titled, "Recollections of a Courier of the Last Ten Days of the Army." It is a first hand account of life on the battlefield in the Civil War and is published in the Confederate Veteran, vol. 27 (1919), page 341.

Other manuscripts include original drafts of plays by Louise Burleigh Powell and musical and drama manuscripts by colleagues of John and Louise Powell. The manuscripts are arranged alphabetically by type of material. Following the manuscripts in this collection, is printed material for musical programs.

The Powell collection also has significant correspondence on eugenics and racial integrity. Powell's dedication to folk music was equaled by his passionate interest in maintaining the purity of the Anglo-Saxon race in America. He was very active in establishing Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America and promoting legislation that would keep the races separate. There are articles about eugenics and many letters written to John Powell about racial integrity, including vivid descriptions by his wife, Louise Burleigh Powell, of the racial laws being argued in the courtroom. Powell also collaborated with Marcus Garvey in a movement that tried to colonize African Americans.

Dr. Walter Ashby Plecker, the State Registrar of the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Virginia, shared Powell's passion for racial integrity, and sent copies of all his correspondence concerning racial matters to Powell. Dr. Plecker believed that the Indians had mixed with African Americans and there were no longer any pure Indians in Virginia. He wrote on the back of their birth certificates that they were not Indian. Plecker dedicated his life to preventing African Americans from trying to pass as Indian or White and there are many copies of his letters in the collection.

In addition to the correspondence of John Powell and Dr. Walter Ashby Plecker, there are news clippings from The Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Richmond News Leader, The Daily Progress and several other newspapers about racial integrity and John Powell.

      She writes that the title of the book, Birthright, by T. S. Stribling has a different meaning to the author but she thinks that the book is interesting. She also praises Powell for his writings on the negro question and the history of the south.

Stribling writes, "All my life I have been aware of the tragedy and pathos of the black fold I saw around me. I have seen their unhappinesses and their humors, and I had never read one solitary book or story which attempted to set down that life justly. I thought I would try."
