Biographical note

Richard Ralf was a German composer born in Karlsruhe, Germany on September 30, 1897. He showed interest in music at an early age and his older sister gave him his first piano lesson when he was six years old. Ralf's father, a singer and a choir master at the Court-Opera in Karlsruhe, took over his instruction and concentrated his studies on accompaniment and sight reading. By the age of 17, Ralf was already a professional musician and earned his first job as a coach and accompanist at a small city theater. Soon after, Ralf was awarded a scholarship by the Archduke of Mecklenburg which enabled Ralf to study in Berlin at the master classes of the Scharwenka Conservatory. However, with the outbreak of World War I, Ralf was forced to give up his studies. He spent three years in the army and suffered from severe shell shock while serving at the French front. Following the war and his recovery, Ralf resumed his studies in composition and studied with Professor Hugo Kaun. After his graduation, he stayed in Berlin and enjoyed much success in all fields of music. He created musical scores for a large number of movies, served as a composer for radio and television, and performed as a permanent conductor and advisor for large theaters and publishing concerns. In 1946, he moved to the United States where he eventually settled in Los Angeles. Ralf's music followed the florid and emotional trend of post-Wagnerian Romanticism. Among his compositions were Transcendental Ballet (1921), Violin Sonata (1923), String Quartet (1924), Violin Concerto (1925), Brothers Arise Cantata (1959), and Symphonic Songs for Mezzo-soprano and Orchestra.(1968). Ralf died in Los Angeles on June 22, 1977.

 Haiku Poetry 

Scope and Content

During the 1970s, Marilyn Lingle Wilhelm, founder and director of the Wilhelm School in Houston, Texas, had her students write Haiku poems. The poems were later compiled into a book called "Haiku Poetry-A Children's Collection" Volume I by the Franklin Press. The students' work received international attention when it was added to a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Los Angeles Natural History Museum and the California Museum of Science and Industry. Subsequently, Wilhelm asked Richard Ralf if he could set some of the Haiku poems to music so that they could be sung at the exhibition opening in Los Angeles. Ralf created music for eleven of the Haiku poems which were performed by the children's choir and small orchestra of the Dixie Canyon Elementary School in Sherman Oaks, California. Even President Richard Nixon got involved and served as Honorary Chairman for the event. The subseries includes correspondence, mostly from Wilhelm to Ralf regarding his work with the project, receipts for his work, a certificate of copyright for the music, and newspaper clippings about the ordeal. The titles of the works are  "The Wind Blows My Hair,"  "Friendly Clouds,"  "Rainy, Rainy Day,"  "Puddle to Puddle,"  "Warm Summer-Sunday,"  "Such a Pretty Day,"  "Buzz-Buzz-Buzz,"  "Sad, Sad Insect,"  "Warm and Sunny Day,"  "Green Body,"  "Black Tail," and  "Morning Sun."
