In Halina Rodzinski’s book Our Two Lives she describes how on the very first day Artur Rodzinski came to assist Stokowski in 1929, his boss immediately restyled his hair without a part and combed straight back from the brow. “That’s how a conductor should look,” said Stokowski, pointing Rodzinski at a mirror in his dressing room at the Academy. Mrs. Rodzinski continues, “Arthur accepted this without question for the rest of his life.”
