Awarded annually by the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs to graduate students in recognition of outstanding research in Canadian Music. Endowed in 2014 by Dr. Elaine Keillor in memory of Helmut Kallmann (1922-2012.) Kallmann fled Nazi Germany when he was a teenager. He became Canada’s first Chief of the Music Division at what was then the National Library of Canada, serving from 1970 to 1987. Dedicating himself to investigating and documenting the musical life of his adopted country, he co-founded the Canadian Music Library Association (now the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (CAML)) and initiated collaboration with the International Association of Music Libraries (IAML.) Kallmann was also supervisor of the CBC music library, one of the editors of the first edition of the Encyclopedia of Music in Canada, and the author of A History of Music in Canada 1534-1914 (1960) which remains even today a much-quoted basic reference.
