Biography: 

Born in 1925 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Will Gay Bottje received his bachelor's degree in flute and his master's degree in composition at the Juilliard School before coming to Eastman, where he was the first person to receive the degree Doctor of Musical Arts from any institution. Before retiring to Grand Rapids, Dr. Bottje taught at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale from 1957 to 1981, where he founded and directed an electonic music studio. He has studied with Nadia Boulanger, with Henk Badings, at the University of Utrecht's electonic music studio, and at the Stiftlesen in Stockholm.
