p_maxwellj.jpgAll that can presently (May 2022) be gleaned about Joseph B. Maxwell from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that he was presumably an American singer, composer and publisher.
He composed some 6 works published between 1904 and 1920, was featured as singer on 8 works published between 1894 and 1898 as well as making at least 9 recordings between 1907 and 1910..
He has also been featured as a duo partner of Maxwell & Simpson, kings of illustrated songs, on 5 works published between 1894 and 1904.
His portrait on the left is taken from Won't You Be My Little Girl? (1896) music by Homer Tourjée, words by Isaac G. Reynolds and published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
