Dan H. Caslar 
Last updated: 01.02.24
Dan H. Caslar is another shadowy ragtime era composer of which nothing is known other that that which can be gleaned from the sheet music covers of barely a handful of his published works. Perhaps his most widely circulated piece is Honey Bunch (1915) which was published by Harry von Tilzer both as an instrumental and as a song, the lyrics being by Andrew B. Sterling.
