Harry Puck  (1891-1964)
Last updated: 30.09.17
According to the Internet source given below, Harry Puck was variously a vaudeville performer, composer and publisher of popular music. Born in Brooklyn, New York he commenced his career aged just some seven years with his sister Eva as a brother/sister vaudeville act known as the Two Pucks from about 1898 until his sister's marriage in 1911. During this period they were featured artists on numerous song sheets, several by Harry von Tilzer. Between 1913 and 1918 Harry Puck was involved mostly with song writing and publishing. When Eva returned to the stage, they worked briefly together as a vaudeville act before pursuing solo careers on Broadway musical stage. In his later years, Harry worked for the Shubert brothers in New York as well as Paramount Pictures in Hollywood. Of his songs he probably best remembered for his My Parcel Post Man (1913) when the US Post Office inaugurated its parcel post service. Of ragtime interest is his The Foot-Warmer (1914). He performed in a number of Broadway shows including Tangerine (1921), Lollipop (1924). Twinkle Twinkle (1926) and Three Little Girls (1930). He died in Metuchen, New Jersey.
