Henry Fillmore  (1881-1956)
Last updated: 27.04.22
According to the Internet source given below, Henry Fillmore [James Henry Fillmore Jr.] was an American composer and publisher. He wrote over 250 pieces and orchestrated hundreds more; he also published a great number of tunes under various pseudonyms such as Gus Beans, Harold Bennett, Ray Hall, Harry Hartley, Al Hayes, Will Huff and Henrietta Moore. While best known for march music, he also wrote waltzes, fox-trots, hymns, and novelty numbers. Born into the family music publishing business Fillmore Brothers Music House for religious music in Cincinnati, Ohio, he mastered piano, guitar, violin, flute and slide trombone and studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in 1901. He then travelled around the United States as a circus bandmaster with his wife, an exotic dancer. Fillmore returned to Cincinnati to take over the family business and directed the Shriners Temple Band turning into one of the most virtuosic marching bands in the U.S.A. In 1938 he retired to Miami, Florida, but kept active in his later years organising and rehearsing high school bands in south Florida.
