Dorothy Maynor, the founder of the Harlem School of the Arts, was an opera soprano and concert singer who performed in Europe, Latin America, and the USA. In 1964, she founded the school which was designed to enrich the children of Harlem through music education at an affordable cost. Mezzo-soprano Betty Allen succeeded Maynor as President in 1979.
