In 1917, Best published the article Patriotic Music in the Grades in the Training School Quarterly (Volume 4, number 3, Oct-Nov-Dec 1917). Apparently, this was a publication of the East Carolina Teachers Training School in Greenville, North Carolina.
It seems likely Best was a North Carolina native. She may have died as late as 1948.
If you can help with any of these items, would you ?
