Thurlow Weed Lieurance (March 21, 1878 – December 9, 1963) was Dean of Fine Arts at Wichita University (1926 to 1945), who brought the University's music program to national prominence. He is known as a composer and a member of the Indianist movement in American music. Mr. Lieurance's interest in Native American music led to his collecting of native flutes, recording native tunes on tape, and to his most famous composition, "By the Waters of Minnetonka."
