Howes earned bachelor's and doctoral degrees in mathematics from the University of Southern California. After receiving his PhD (in 1974), he held teaching positions at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota. In 1979, he moved to the University of California, Davis, where he was a member of the faculty until 1991.

Gualtiero Negrini descends from a long line of operatic personae, his great-uncle Carlo Negrini having premiered in the role of Gabriele Adorno in Simone Boccanegra for Verdi himself. After being chosen as one of the winners of the 1980 Lyric Opera of Chicago Auditions, at the tender age of 19, he went on to make American operatic history with that company when, at the age of 21, he replaced an ailing Gosta Windbergh as Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte thereby becoming the youngest tenor to ever sing a leading role in a major American opera house.
