Louise V. Gustin  (c. 1870-1910)
Last updated: 16.02.21
From scattered Internet sources it can be learned that Louise V. Gustin was an American composer of popular music, birthday unknown. Her outpit is reported to have been prolific but Internet searching has produced the meagre list given below. She is assumed to have been from the Detroit area where her music was published by the Whitney-Warner Company. There is some speculation [by Max Morath] that she was subject to sex prejudice in the music business of the time, and perhaps equally about social attitudes regarding popular music. Today she is best know for her Topsy Turvy (1899) and X-n-tric (1900)
