Fred Fisher  (1875-1942)
Last updated: 07.04.21
According to the Internet source given below, Fred Fisher [born Fischer] was an American songwriter, composer and publisher of popular music. An adventurous lad, born of American parents in Cologne, Germany, he absconded from home at the age 13 to join the Imperial German Navy and later, the French Foreign Legion before emigrating to America in 1900. He started to write songs and compose in 1904, his first success being If The Man In The Moon Were A Coon (1905). Fisher moved to Hollywood in the 1920's to become involved in silent movies and early film musicals. His most enduring success must be the much recorded Peg O'My Heart (1913). The greater part of his output comprised comic songs; his My Brudda Sylvest! (1908) sparked off what has now become similarly named Royal Navy folk song, no doubt much to the surprise of all concerned. He died in New York.
