    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.
