Melanie Bookout examines the work of a major music patron, Frances Macbeth Glessner
(1848-1932), patron and friend to many of the best musicians, artists, poets, and writers who lived or worked in Chicago. Glessner was an accomplished pianist, and her activities as clubwoman and patron offer a rich glimpse of music-making in “frontier” America.
