Dec 1900, page 2. "Accomplished Musician and Composer, dies near
Edinburgh, Scotland. Heart Trouble was the Cause. Was a Performer on
Cello and Organ of Ability, and Organized the Famous Vested Choir of St.
John's P.E. Church, Bridgeport -- A Widow Survives Him. (Special to The
Register) Bridgeport, Dec. 15.--Word was received here today that
Professor I. [sic] Hayden Waud, late of New Haven, is dead. The
circumstances pertaining to his death are distressing and his vast array
of friends in this country will be grieved to learn the sad
intelligence. [paragraph] Not only was Professor Waud widely known in
the musical world but he was intimately acquainted in literary and
social circles and was a great favorite among all who came in contact
with him. He was scholarly, a composer of classical music and a master
of his art. Over 25 years ago he came from England to Quebec, Canada, to
assume the duties of organist in the cathedral there. [paragraph]
Previously he was a member of the Queen's orchestra. After a few years
in Quebec Professor Waud was induced by some of his friends who had come
from England and settled in Albany, to give up his Quebec engagement and
accept a similar position in Albany, N.Y. [paragraph] About 20 years ago
Professor Waud received the appointment of organist at St. John's
Epispocal Church, this city [Bridgeport, Connecticut]. It was during the
time Rev. Eaton W. Maxey was Rector of St. John's and the famous choir
was in its prime, with Mrs. Henry Drew as soprano. [paragraph] Professor
Waud presided at the St. John's organ for six years and then resigned to
make place for Professor S. S. Sanford of this city. [paragraph]
Professor Waud removed to Stamford and received several engagements at
different church organs and after several years removed from Stamford to
New Haven. It was in this latter place that Professor Waud received a
warm welcome and former [sic = formed] many friendships among the
cultivated people of that collegiate city. He was appreciated.
[paragraph] He became a valued member of the Symhony society. All of his
compositions were readily placed in the market by the Pond Publishing
Company and his music was promptly taken by music lovers. [paragraph] He
was a gifted 'cello player as well as a master of the piano and organ.
[paragraph] About two years ago Prof Waud had a severe illness, and
hoping to regain health he decided last June to go back to England. He
and Mrs. Waud bade good bye to their friends in New Haven, expecting to
return after a time. [paragraph] They went to Edinburgh, and Prof. Waud
found that he could secure an engagement to preside at the organ in one
of the churches at Joppa, near Edinburgh...[letter of recommendation
included here from Eaton W. Maxey, Rector of St. Luke's Church,
Bridgeport, Conn.] ... Late in November, Prof. Waud was returning from
church at night and accidentally stepped off the sidewalk and fell in
the street, badly injuring his arm. He was laid up for several days, and
November 28 was taken with convulsions of the heart, and died December 1
after great suffering. [paragraph] Mrs. Waud, one of the most devoted of
wives, is left to mourn a husband of scholarly attainments, a
distinguished musician as well as a husband -- one of the best,
generous, sympathetic natures -- and a man whom none knew but to admire
and respect. Mrs. Waud is residing at No. 1 Dalkeith Street, Joppa,
Scotland. (NHavEvRegDig 15Dec1900 p.2).
