by Murray Forbes Somerville. An undated portrait of Paine attributed to Caroline A. Cranch. A local composer, a German immigrant, taught young John Knowles Paine the organ, and the boy soon excelled at the keyboard. It became clear that he would need greater educational opportunities to nurture his talent-but the Great Fire of Portland destroyed the family's business in 1856 and his father died shortly thereafter. Returning to the United States in 1861, Paine decided to seek his fortune in Boston and was quickly appointed organist of the socially prominent West Church on Cambridge Street. Six months later, when Harvard College needed someone to take charge of the music for its new Appleton Chapel following the sudden death of the choirmaster, the 23-year-old Paine was asked to take over.
