John Alden 
Last updated: 19.01.22
This John Alden is not to be confused with the famous Pilgrim Father, John Alden. No, he is yet another obscure ragtime era composer known only from the covers of their published sheet music.
Of ragtime interest is his La Veeda (1920) with words by Nat H. Vincent published by Jerome H. Remick & Co..
