Congratulations Drew, PhD!

I hope you will all join me in congratulating Drew Massey as he receives his PhD in musicology from Harvard today.

While we in academia like to refer to people such as Drew as “freshly minted PhDs,” I feel that the phrase implies a “wet behind the ears” sensibility that just isn’t applicable in this case.  With a high-profile publications and numerous conference presentations, Drew has amassed too impressive a dossier for being “shiny and new.”  I don’t want this post to sound too much like a letter of recommendation, but I must say that I am immensely proud to call such an accomplished and inspiring scholar my colleague, co-blogger, and friend.  I look forward to his continued success in the future.

With this post, Amusicology graduates too:  We are now only partially a graduate-student run musicology blog.

Congratulations, Dr. Drew Massey!
