John Evarts Scrapbook


John Evarts was born around 1909 in Vermont to Alice C. and Sherman Evarts, both natives of New York. Noted as an improvisational pianist, Evarts had been on the BMC music faculty from 1933 until his departure in 1942 for active duty in the U.S. Army. Instead of returning to BMC as expected, Evarts remained in Europe many years beyond the war. The scrapbook, a record of the production, DANSE MACABRE, was created by or for Evarts.
