Samaroff was born Lucy Mary Agnes Hickenlooper in San Antonio, Texas. She would later reinvent herself as Olga Samaroff and become one of America's first and perhaps most famous international female concert artists of the early 20th century. Musically trained by her grandmother, Samaroff later studied in Paris after winning a competition and becoming the first American woman to ever be admitted to the classes at the prestigious Conservatoire de Musique. In 1904, after a disastrous marriage, Samaroff returned to New York, determined to start a new life and begin a concert career. Against her family's advice and on borrowed money, Samaroff hired the New York Symphony and rented Carnegie Hall to give her American debut, a very risky venture in the world of 1905, especially for a woman. A New York promoter also advised her to change her name. Thus against tremendous odds, Samaroff gave an American debut and rose from complete obscurity to become the most successful American woman concert pianist of her time. Overshadowed by her famous husband, Leopold Stokowski, whose talent she first recognized and whose career she fostered, she was at the very center of a vibrant American musical life. Divorced from Stokowski in 1923, Samaroff embarked on yet another career, becoming the only American-born piano faculty member at the new Juilliard School of Music (1924) and commuting faculty member for the Philadelphia Conservatory in 1928. She even launched the first competition for American musicians--the Schubert Memorial--creating for the first time, a venue only for young American musicians to perform and compete. Richard Farrell, William Kapell, Joseph Battista, Rosalyn Tureck, Joseph Bloch, Eugene List, Alexis Weissenberg, and Maurice Hinson are only a few whose talents first found expression under her tutelage
