Description A noted composer and music theorist, Professor Carlton Gamer received his Bachelors in Music from Northwestern University in 1950, and his Masters from Boston University in 1951. He came to Colorado College first in 1953 as an accompanist for the dance program. From 1954 through 1960, he was a full-time instructor in the music department. He became assistant professor in 1960; associate professor in 1966; and served as a full professor from 1974 until his retirement in 1994. Besides his talents as a composer and teacher of music, Professor Gamer also has had a great interest in Asian culture and philosophy and mathematical thought. As a conscientious objector, Professor Gamer counseled many young men about the draft.
