Earle Moss

During his teaching career at Northwest, Earle Moss was the founder of the University's Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity and served as the fraternity's first faculty adviser.  Additionally, Moss started Northwest's Progressive Jazz Group, serving as its director for 33 years.  In 1995, the Jazz group celebrated its 40th anniversary with a concert.  As guest conductor, Moss directed several jazz alumni in musical arrangements he created over the years.  To commemorate this celebration, his former student and fellow jazz enthusiast, Dr. George Green '58, led the way to establish the Earle I. Moss Jazz Scholarship.  Following Moss's death, Green offered to match contributions given to the Earle I. Moss Jazz Scholarship and the Earle I. Moss Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Scholarship funds during October, November and December 2002.
