Picture About LINCOLN, Harry J. (1878-1937)

Harry James Lincoln (b 13 April 1878 Shamokin, Pennsylvania; d. 19 Apr 1937 Philadelphia) was a music composer from Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Aside from running his own publication company, he wrote many marches and rags, such as the Bees Wax Rag (1911), the Lincoln Highway two step march (1921), and quite possibly the Repasz Band March (1901). This last composition, created for the local Repasz Band (now the oldest brass band still in existence), has also been credited to its trombonist Charles C. Sweeley; however, evidence indicates that Sweeley had bought rights to the march from Lincoln.

Lincoln used pseudonyms Abe Losch ("Losch" was the maiden name of his mother), Carl Loveland, and Harry Jay. He died in 1937, at the young age of 59.
