Abstract: If there is a patron saint of UNCG’s magnificent Cello Music Collection, her name is Elizabeth Cowling (1910-1997). In fact, it is safe to say that if not for Cowling there would be no Cello Music Collection at UNCG. From the time of her arrival at Woman’s College in 1945 until long after her retirement from UNCG in 1976, Professor Cowling’s comprehensive endeavors as a cellist, pedagogue, scholar, and collaborator laid the groundwork for the establishment of the massive repository of cello music now housed in the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives at UNCG.
