Background
Born on 2 February 1912 in Fort Scott, Kansas, Maurice Faulkner was awarded a B.S. from Fort Hayes State College in 1932. While teaching music in the public school system, he earned a M.A. from the Teacher's College at Columbia University. Faulkner was appointed to the faculty of San Jose State College in 1937, and received a Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1956. In 1940, he joined the faculty at Santa Barbara State College, where he was instrumental in the College's inclusion in the University of California system. His early days at Santa Barbara were interrupted by military service in World War II. In addition to his teaching duties, Faulkner served as chairman of the music department in the early 1950s. He retired from UCSB in 1979.
