History

John Patrick Foulds was born in 1916, the only son of John Herbert Foulds, composer, and his partner Maud MacCarthy, violinist, Theosophist and esoteric teacher. At the time of his birth Maud MacCarthy was married to William Mann, and John Patrick’s name was thus registered as John Patrick Mann. However, he was known throughout his life as Patrick Foulds.

John Patrick showed great artistic promise as a young child, and by his mid-teens was contributing drawings and sketches to promotional material for his mother’s Grove End phonotherapy clinic. In 1935 he migrated with his family to India, and while there produced pen and ink drawings to illustrate newspaper and magazine articles. He later served in the British army during the Second World War.

Towards the end of his life he observed the restoration of his father’s musical reputation with interest, collecting ephemera that related to performances and recordings of John Herbert Foulds’ work. He engaged in correspondence with several scholars working on the music and legacy of John Herbert Foulds, including his biographer Malcolm MacDonald.

In 1996 he sorted and re-organised the MacCarthy Foulds family papers in his possession and transferred them to the custody of Dr. Neil Sorrell at the University of York.

He died at his home in Devon in 2008.
