Benjamin Burwell Johnston, Junior (born March 15, 1926 in Macon, Georgia) is one of the best known composers writing in the just intonation system. He is best known for extending Harry Partch's experiments in just tuning to traditional instruments through his system of notation. Johnston taught composition and theory at the University of Illinois from 1951 to 1983. Johnston began as a traditional composer of art music before working with Partch. After working with Partch he studied with Darius Milhaud at Mills College. It was in fact Partch himself who set Johnston up with Milhaud. It should be noted that Johnston struggled with just how to integrate just intonation into his compositions for a number of years. Since 1960 Johnston has used, almost exclusivly, a system of microtonal notation based on the rational intervals of just intonation. Johnston also worked with John Cage, who encouraged him to pursue the composition of just-tuned music for traditional instruments. ...more on Wikipedia about "Ben Johnston"
