Wilhelm Middelschulte (1863–1943) studied church music in Berlin. From 1891 onwards he was director of the organ department at the American Conservatory in Chicago and Wisconsin Conservatory in Milwaukee. As a virtuoso organist he had a formative influence in the USA. No lesser authority than Ferruccio Busoni described Middelschulte as the "master of counterpoint” and the greatest contrapuntalist since Johann Sebastian Bach.
