Roland "Doc" Boisvert

    For some research I am doing on Roland “Doc” Boisvert, an important scholar of chant and formerly organist and choirmaster at St. Louis Cathedral here in New Orleans, I am interested in assembling information about Boisvert’s work with the training of choirs elsewhere in America and whatever photos might be available of Boisvert, training exercises, etc. I believe that Boisvert died here in New Orleans in the mid-1990s and have read an article of his in The Caecelia for June 1933 on training boys’ choirs. He was at one time, however, organist and choirmaster at the Roman Catholic cathedral of Dubuque, Iowa, I believe in the late 1920s or early 1930s. Can anyone help? Thanks!
