Thaddeus L. Bolton, a graduate student in psychology at Massachusett's Clark University who received a Ph.D. in 1895, appears to have written the first doctoral thesis on a topic closely related to music education. The thesis, titled "Rhythm," predated by a few weeks a music education dissertation written by John J. Dawson, a graduate student of education at New York University. Bolton's dissertation describes an experimental study of the reactions of thirty subjects to sounds occurring at different speeds and intensities and with different durations and patterns of accentuation.
