American pianist and writer Edward Baxter Perry was born in Haverill, Massachusetts on 14 (or possibly 17) February 1855. He was blind from early in his life, but this didn't prevent him from studying in Europe, possibly with Liszt, touring widely in the USA or writing books.
Perry died suddenly from a heart attack on 13 June 1924, aged sixty-nine.
