Gerald Marks

Profile:
American composer, pianist, and bandleader.
Born 13 October 1900 in Saginaw, Michigan, USA Died 27 January 1997 in New York City, New York, USA.

He published more than 400 songs in his 80-year career. Most notable for 'All Of Me' that he co-wrote with Seymour Simons, and which is sometimes mis-credited to Franklyn Marks. His songs have charted 13 times, 5 of them being "All of Me", which charted to #1 in the U.S. twice in 1932 by Louis Armstrong and by Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra. "Is It True What They Say About Dixie?" by Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra also hit #1 in the U.S. in 1936 (co-written by Irving Caesar & Sammy Lerner).
Marks wrote his first song, on wrapping paper, at age 10. He began performing in Detroit on radio with his orchestra in the 1920's and the orchestra was still recording in the 1950s. Marks was still writing songs and giving lectures on college campuses well into his 90s.
