Professor of music and director of the music school Frederick L. Ritter died suddenly in Antwerp.  “He was a thorough musician, and as a writer on musical topics took a high position.  Indeed, his literary works have made a deep impression upon the musical growth of this country.

“Personally, he was singularly genial and cheerful, and none but pleasant memories of him are cherished by all with whom he came in contact.”     Vassar Miscellany
