Ann G. B. Baldwin Pianist, teacher


A memorial service for Anne Gordon Boyce Baldwin, who taught piano for many years and later accompanied singers at Gilman School, will be held at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Cathedral and Read streets.

Mrs. Baldwin, who was 80 and lived on Bryn Mawr Road, died Wednesday at the Roland Park Place Health Care Center after a long illness.

From 1946 until 1969, she accompanied the chorus at Gilman. For 15 years before that, she taught piano privately.

In the early 1940s, she was a volunteer music therapist at Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital. During World War II, she entertained servicemen at Baltimore's USO and at the East Hamilton Street Club.

Born in Baltimore, the former Anne Gordon Boyce was educated at the Calvert and Bryn Mawr schools. At the latter, she was senior class president and captain of the basketball team.

She studied piano at the Peabody Conservatory, where she received her teacher's certificate in 1925. In 1945, she earned a bachelor's degree at the Johns Hopkins University.

In her youth, she taught Sunday school classes at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation. She was an active swimmer and tennis player. She made her debut at the Bachelors Cotillon in 1929.

She is survived by her husband, Ludlow Hopkins Baldwin, retired headmaster of Gilman School; two nieces; two nephews; four grandnieces; and four grandnephews.

The family suggested memorial gifts to the Music Fund at Gilman School.
