Robert A. King  (1862-1932)
Last updated: 20.02.17
According to the Internet source given below, Robert A. King [born Robert Keiser] was a prolific American composer and songwriter of popular music; born and died in New York. He published using both names, anonymously and also used a pseudonym, Mary Earl. His total output will probably never be known.
He worked at Ditson's music store as a child before entering Tin Pan Alley at the publisher, Leo Feist, where he produced his first hit Anona (1903). In 1918, he was contracted to Shapiro-Bernstein Music Publishers to write 4 songs per month. These included the hits Beautiful Ohio (1918) and Dreamy Alabama (1919). Of ragtime interest, is his very early Everything is Ragtime Now (1899) written as Robert Keiser
