Biography

Louise Chapman was an assistant in the Music Department at the Minneapolis Public Library.

This research led to the six part series, "The First Fifty Years of Music in Minneapolis," published in the Minneapolis Tribune in 1935. She returned to her position at the library shortly after the articles were published, and also remained an active writer and speaker.
