Ragtime: An Encyclopedia, Discography, and Sheetography is the definitive reference work for this important popular form of music that flourished from the 1890s through the 1920s, and was one of the key predecessors of jazz. It collects for the first time entries on all the important composers and performers, and descriptions of their works; a complete listing of all known published ragtime compositions, even those self-published and known only in single copies; and a complete discography from the cylinder era to today. It also represents the culmination of a lifetime’s research for its author, considered to be the foremost scholar of ragtime and early twentiethh-century popular music. Rare photographs accompany most entries, taken from the original sheets, newspapers, and other archival sources.

"In 1959, shortly before his death and while reflecting over his roller-coaster career as a Hollywood film director, Preston Sturges (who I write about more fully later in this book) remarked, "the only amazing thing about my career...is that I ever had one at all." (1) The same might be said about my career as a physician and historian of medicine. As a young boy, some of my best companions were the characters I met on the pages of novels, stories, theatrical scripts, and screenplays. Fascinated by human stories, contradictions, both moral and physical, and worlds so vastly different from my middle-class, suburban Detroit upbringing, I was inspired to I try my hand at writing some of my own tales. In my teens, I was an active participant in my high school's theatre program (thankfully, in an era when taxpayers still supported the arts as a critical part of the public school curriculum) and wrote a series of incredibly bad plays. Soon enough, I was confronted by the decidedly difficult time I had in coming up with believable plots, a serious handicap for any budding fabulist."--
