Last updated: 23.03.21
According to the Internet source given below, Henry W. [Harry] Armstrong was an American boxer, booking agent, producer, singer, pianist and composer.

His greatest hit was Sweet Adeline, in 1903 with Richard H. Gerard, whilst in Britain generations of pub "singers" and maudlin bathroom wannabes murdered his You're my heart's desire, I love you Nellie Dean (1905). A Tin Pan Alley writer, he made his mark in the ragtime world with The Frisco Rag (1909).
