I Wonder as I Wander


University Press of Kentucky

On August 20, 1919, Niles came back to his civilian life from the army. A month before his wife died, he returned to his parents' home in Louisville, because he had been transformed by the war and it was uneasy for him to stay with his wife. Niles chose to stay with his parents rather than live with his wife because he found that the world had changed in his absence. An old friend of Niles, musician Garner Rowell, provided him with some direction in his life by encouraging him to join the Cincinnati Conservatory. The Veterans' Bureau supported Niles's education. He registered there as a full-time student and enrolled in piano, voice, harmony, composition, opera, and French.
