Theodora Bothwell was professor of piano and organ at Taylor University for 31 years. She was employed from 1923-1954. During the majority of her time at Taylor she was also the Director of the Music School or Chairman of the Fine Arts. The 1948 yearbook was dedicated to her “[b]ecause she has done more than any other individual in making a cultural contribution to the campus and to the hundreds who have passed through her studio; because of the zeal and enthusiasm which she has shown in her work; because of the high esteem in which she is held by those who known and work with her” and also explains her personality as “a very active person and yet she has found time to take personal interest in those with whom she is associated. Not limiting her interest to the musical world,  she can voice opinions on subjects ranging from seventeenth-century drawing-room manners to modern architecture.”
