To, meet the demands of many
students, a new department has
been established at the Normal
School. There have been numer
ous requests from students for
private instruction in voice cul
ture, and after . considering the
application of about sixty exper
ienced teachers, President Crabbe
and Professor Koch have selected
Miss Lelia Ellen McKee as the
besfy qualified and most highly
trained musician to undertake
the work. ,
Miss McKee - will riot only
teach voice but also, violin and
piano, and is equally superior in
each. She has studied under the
best masters and has had consid
erable experience as a teacher.
She comes from one of the
best families of Danville. Her,
grandfather, Dr. J.L. McKee,
was for a number of years asso
ciated with Central University.
Many of our older residents will
recollect her uncle, J. Lapsley
McKee, who was at one time pas
tor of the Second Presbyterian

McKee, was a Presbyterian min
ister in the Eastern part of the

She also had a splendid training
in voice at the Cosmopolitan
School of Music and Dramatic
Art, of Chicago, and took ensem
ble with Henry Eames and Dr.
Wm. Carver Willliams. Her
technic on both piano and violin
is remarkably well developed.
Her voice is a very pure, sweet,
lyric soprano of high compass.
As she is a young lady of great
culture and refinement, and of
charming personality, the school
is to be congratulated on having
secured her services, and Rich
mond is fortunate in having such
an accomplished musician as a
permanent member of the music
fraternity, .. . -
