Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

 Dr. Schweitzer was a physician, theologian, musician and philosopher. His writings on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) have been an invaluable resource and inspiration for organists and musicologists. The Nobel Peace Laureate’s ethic of Reverence for Life emphasizes each human being’s responsibility to all forms of life on our planet. This philosophy is the foundation of the programs of the Albert Schweitzer Institute, located at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.
