Whitney Eugene Thayer
Thayer gave his first concert just after the installation of the new organ in the Boston Music Hall in 1863. An early student of John Knowles Paine, he advanced to studied organ and counterpoint in Berlin with Carl August Haupt (who also taught Paine). After returning from Berlin he worked in Boston and later in New York City as an organist. He was also a touring virtuoso, organ teacher, and music writer.
