Harry S. Beall, who also looked after Jessye Norman, Gary Graffman, and the Guarneri String Quartet in a select group of artists, has died at the age of 88. Starting out as the first fulltime press officer at the Boston Symphony Orchestra, he joined Arthur Judson in a new agency in 1964 when the CAMI founder was kicked out of his own firm. Harry set up an indepedent agency, wound up on his retirement in 1991. He was gentle, modest man, devoted to his family and his artists.

  • Robert Levin says:

    Harry was a gentleman and was very helpful to me when I first started in the management business. In several instances, he was far more devoted to his artists than they were to him. He will be missed.
