Thread Name: Help: Camptown Races (Stephen Foster) Background
Subject: RE: Help: Stephen Foster Tune Background
Here is a nice on-line biography of Stephen C. Foster. If you will click here, yoiu'll be directed to a page about Stephen C. Foster's young teenage years at the Athens Academy in Athens, Pa. (with great illustrations!). The Tioga Waltz dates from his Athens academy days, and the local Tioga Point Museum contains some Foster material.

--Charlie Baum, who went to a private school in Connecticut, the founder of which had also coincidentally spent 1841-42 in Towanda, Pa.
