Longtime Music Professor, Band Director Retiring At Loyola

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A professor of music who has spent more than half a century at Loyola University in New Orleans is preparing to retire.

         The university says Joseph G. "Doc" Hebert, Jr. is stepping down at the end of the current semester.

         Hebert has been a professor of music at Loyola for 50 years, and has been band director for almost that long. His final band performance is set for April 26.

         Hebert has a 55-year history at Loyola.

         He graduated from Loyola in 1963 before earning a master's degree in tuba from the Manhattan School of Music in New York. While teaching at high schools in New Orleans he also was the assistant band director at Loyola. He later earned his doctorate and was appointed the director of bands.
