All that can presently (February 2019) be gleaned about by internet searching and the covers of his published sheet music is that Newton. Alexander has a handful of works written between 1914 and 1924. Of ragtime interest is his Oh! That Lovey Rag!
(1914), published by W. T. Pierson & Co.
, New York, USA. and especially written for Lightner & Jordan.
Of that charming ladiy duet pictured on the front cover of Oh! That Lovey Rag!
absolutely zero can be found.
