C. Ward Rounds served in Northwest Missouri State University's Department of Music for 25 years and directed the Bearcat Marching Band.
Rounds, who joined the Northwest faculty in 1960, was an instructor of brass and percussion as well as director of bands. In 1963, he established the Northwest summer music camps program, which has since become an institution.
He and his wife, Liz, performed on faculty recitals on a regular basis, in addition to providing music for special occasions at their church.
Rounds taught at Northwest until his retirement in 1985, but he continued to give private lessons for another 20 years in addition to repairing horns for several area schools.
