1957 U. S. and Canadian Fellows

Dominick Argento American composer

Dominick Argento was an American composer known for his lyric operatic and choral music. Among his best known pieces are the operas Postcard from Morocco, Miss Havisham's Fire, The Masque of Angels, and The Aspern Papers. He also is known for the song cycles Six Elizabethan Songs and From the Diary of Virginia Woolf; the latter earned him the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1975. In a predominantly tonal context, his music freely combines tonality, atonality and a lyrical use of twelve-tone writing, though none of Argento's music approaches the experimental avant-garde fashions of the post-World War II era.

Magda Blondiau Arnold was an psychologist; the first contemporary theorist to develop appraisal theory of emotions, which moved the direction of emotion theory away from "feeling" theories and "behaviorist" theories and toward the cognitive approaches which dominate today. She also created a new method of scoring the Thematic Apperception Test called Story Sequence Analysis.
