Comments on Apendix Table A

Comments refer only to the data reported for number of faculty members.
5Composers were apparently excluded
8The reported number does not correspond either to the narrow or broad definitions of "Doctoral-Research Programs"
15May include emeritus professors, or all faculty
17Three lecturers in Music History/Musicology may have been counted
18The three numbers represent the Dept. of Music (Ph.D. in Composition only); the Dept. of Ethnomusicology and Systematic Musicology; and the Dept. of Musicology. It is plain that the f aculty members of the Dept. of Music were counted, even though their program awards no Ph.D. in Theory, Musicology or Ehtnomusicology. The eight faculty members teaching in those areas in the Dept. of Music are included with "Professors Outside Field."
20Only Musicology/Music History were reported, omitting Music Theory (as well as Ethnomusicology, which is taught in the Anthropology Dept.)
21All fields were counted
36.5Reported count apparently omitted 7 Music Theory professors
40Three "adjunct professors" may have been counted
49Four adjuncts may have been counted
