Edward B. Scheve - Music Composition 1906-1924
by Catherine Rod

Edward Benjamin Scheve was born in Herford, Germany in 1865 and came to the United States around 1890 first to Rochester, NY and then to Grinnell, IA in 1906. He was a successful composer and served on the music faculty at Grinnell College from 1906 until his death in 1924. In announcing his death, the college alumni publication, Grinnell and You, stated, "He was a great teacher, a great organist, and a great composer. He made Grinnell musical, and any future history of the college and the town will number him among the real founders of Grinnell."
