Description The study summarizes the activities of the founder of university musicology in Brno Vladimír Helfert (1886–1945) at the Masaryk University where he lectured and made research between 1921 and 1939, in 1935–1936 also as dean of the Faculty of Arts. He raised a whole generation of musicologists and his pupils became involved signicantly in the Brno and Moravian music scene and cultural life as early as the end of the 1920s. By the 1930s Helfert's Brno Musicological School acquired prestige as a progressive social, cultural and scholarly phenomenon. His legacy has been recognized by several further generations of musicologists until present.
