Birth of Ethelbert Nevin
Composer Ethelbert Woodbridge Nevin was born on November 25, 1862, in Edgeworth, Pennsylvania.
Nevin received most of his education from his father, who edited a Pittsburgh newspaper, and contributed articles to magazines. He even composed songs, including a number of campaign songs such as “Our Nominee” for James K. Polk. Nevin’s mother played piano – her grand piano was the first to be taken across the Allegheny Mountains.
