The DCCCD Foundation has established a Dr Richard W Payne Scholarship Fund. The Richard W. Payne Scholarship was created by the Armadillo Flute Society to honor Dr. Payne for five decades of service to preserve and promote the Native American flute. Dr. Payne, a retired Oklahoma physician, is an avid collector, historian and author of papers and books on the Native American flute. He is attributed with saving the Native American flute from extinction by returning flutes from his collection to Native Americans.
This scholarship fund offers an award of up to $1000 per year ($500 per semester, tuition and books only) plus complimentary registration for the Annual Armadillo/Richland College Native American Flute Retreat. The applicants must must have a 3.0 GPA or better and enroll full-time (12 credit hours or more) in music or pre-medicine with a demonstrated interest in playing or studying the Native American flute.
Doc Payne was a wonderful flute maker, flute player and he had the largest collection of Native American Flutes ever assembled prior to his passing. He is featured in the videos: Songkeepers and Toubat. This CD was probably the last time Doc played these flutes in his collection that extensively before his passing.

Suzies email to me includes the web links which I always type incorrectly so you can get that from me if you contact me off list. I love the parts where Doc talks and explains the flute then plays that very instrument. This was probably the last time Doc played these flutes in his collection that extensively before his passing.
