Profile:
American conductor and composer (b. December 25, 1889 New York, NY – d. February 18, 1982 Franklin Square, NY, USA).

Former classical clarinetist with New York Philharmonic, played in John Philip Sousa's and other concert bands; served as Victor's Director of Light Music from 1915-1935, and led orchestral accompaniment for many Victor artists during these years and on occasion also later.

Movies that he worked on include Mary of Scotland (1936), Swing Time (1936), The Plough and the Stars and Shall We Dance? (1937), and several Laurel and Hardy films. From 1946 through the mid-1950s, he made short films for RKO-Pathé.
