Dixon, Dean

(1915–76) conductor; born in New York City. As a talented African-American child, he was helped by Eleanor Roosevelt. Although he studied at Juilliard and Columbia University, and founded the American Youth Orchestra in 1944, racial conditions in the U.S.A. led him to concentrate on a career in Europe, where he was widely admired.
