Irene M. Giblin  (1888-1974)
Quoting from the Arcadian Press sheet notes: "Just graduated from high school, Irene Giblin (1888-1974) of St. Louis, Missouri, got a job as a salesperson/pianist in the music department of a St. Louis department store. There, she showcased new music - rags, etc. - for the store's customers. It seems natural, in this environment that she would try creating some music of her own.
Irene Giblin wrote, and published, nine rags, starting in 1905 with "Chicken Chowder" (her favourite).
Like many other women ragtime composers, Irene Giblin gave up her career in music to raise a family. However, she never lost in music nor stopped playing the piano. According to her son, Ed O'Brien: "She was an extremely talented pianist and played all types of music extremely well, but it was obvious that the ragtime type of music was her first love".
List of Irene M. Giblin's works.
