Anthony Beltramo (PhD, Stanford 1972) was part of the Spanish faculty
at the University of Montana until retiring in 2005. He taught Spanish
applied linguistics and 2nd-language pedagogy with a research focus on
language retention in U.S. Hispanic communities, and English-language
influences on the Spanish spoken there. Since the 1960s, when he studied
and taught in Mexico, he has maintained a strong personal interest in
Mexican and Mexican American music and folklore. An amateur clarinetist
and guitarist, he relished opportunities to participate, for example, in
the Banda Municipal de Torreón and in conjuntos with colleagues
and students, and he often used music in his teaching. Activities over
the years (aside from his academic work) included forming a mariachi
band, tracking down and recording the performance of corridos as well as
other Latino musical styles, and documenting these in Montana as part of
the state's oral history. These are song sheets and instruction books he
has collected over several decades.
