Renowned Guitar Collector Endows Professorship
UT Dallas News Center
Russell Cleveland is internationally known as a collector of classical and acoustic guitars. His collection, which spans the evolution of guitar making, is the basis for the book, The Classical Guitar: A Complete History, which is valued highly as a reference guide.
Cleveland’s love for the music is reflected in his support for the Guitar Studies program at The University of Texas at Dallas and has made him the driving force behind the Texas Guitar Competition, about to celebrate its ninth year and presented by the School of Arts and Humanities.
Now Cleveland has taken his passion another step by endowing a professorship that bears his name at UT Dallas. Enric Madriguera, director of guitar studies, is the first recipient of the Russell Cleveland Endowed Professorship for Guitar Studies. With the help of this gift, Dennis Kratz, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, says his goal is to build the best guitar studies program in the state.
