Biographical/Historical note

Washington State University's School of Music was established in 1901. WSU's High School Summer Camp was started in 1933 by Fine Arts Dean Herbert Kimbrough. It eventually expanded to include non-music fields including journalism, speech, drama, and art. Each Camp lasted four weeks (mid-June to mid-July); while the first camp was only 40 high school students, by the mid-1960s it had grown to over 300.
