This chapter examines the career development of Georges Barrère during the period from 1917 to 1918. In the fall of 1917, xenophobia reached fever pitch in the U.S., which affected concert stages. To take advantage of anti-German hysteria and gain American support for the post-war reconstruction of France, American supporters of France founded a magazine called New France. This magazine helped stabilize the status of French musicians in the U.S., including Barrère. During this period, Barrère engaged in a series of fund raising projects and his student William Kincaid was awarded a silver medal on the completion of the artists' course at the Institute of Musical Art.

Keywords:   Georges Barrère, xenophobia, New France, French musicians, fund raising, William Kincaid
