Pinkham, whose great-grandmother was the manufacturer of patent medicines, Lydia E. Pinkham, was an American composer, organist, and harpsichordist.

For decades he was the organist of King's Chapel in Boston, and he performed regularly with the Boston Symphony Orchestra as an organist and also as a harpsichordist.

He died of chronic lymphocytic leukemia in Natick, Massachusetts, and was survived by his longtime partner, the organist Andrew Paul Holman.
