Our chief source for the 1931 graduation list is an article in the Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, published on Tuesday, May 27, 1931. Twenty-eight members of the class are mentioned in the newspaper.

The Tuesday article says, "The following are a list of graduates who have so far been passed on, several more are now being considered..." and graduation was on Thursday. The most common graduating number for classes during this era was 35, so there may be 7-10 additional names that should be listed.

During his secondary studies at Brigham Young High, Keeler stood out as a talented student. Following graduation at age 18, his teacher Leroy J. Robertson, accompanied him to Germany, where he studied until returning to Provo in 1933. Keeler graduated from BYU in 1935 with a bachelors in Music and in 1950 with a masters in Music. When Keeler returned to Provo in 1933, he had made two decisions: he wanted to marry Virginia Bowles, and he wanted to play the organ. Unfortunately, he didnít have any money or a job and BYU didnít offer organ classes. He discussed his dilemmas with the university president and a used organ was purchased from the Provo Paramount Theatre. Keeler was hired to play the organ for assemblies and to teach other students to play. He was now able to provide for his sweetheart. He married her. And he also started the organ program at BYU, which he instructed until his retirement many decades later. His fellow faculty members included Margaret Summerhays, Franklin Madsen, Florence Jepperson Madsen, Leroy Robertson and Robert Sauer. For the majority of his career, Keelerís office was located in College Hall, on the Lower Campus. In 1964 he moved to newly constructed Harris Fine Arts Center. This move facilitated the growth of the organ program, adding performance venues and practice opportunities. Parley Belnap, Douglas E. Bush, Don Cook, Clay Christiansen and Bonnie Goodliffe were among the students who studied under Keeler. His passion for music and vision for the program helped it to grow. Keeler drew other experienced organists to the program. He was influential in bringing Bill Foxley, Robert Cundick, John Longhurst and Robert Manookin to BYU. He helped arrange for famous organists to visit campus, and was a key player in organizing several recitals. He also was heavily involved in composition. But teaching remained his passion. Keeler taught his last organ lesson when he was 85. That final lesson was on a Friday. He passed away the following Sunday. Source.
