All that has been learned about Frederick G. Johnson has been gleaned from the covers of his published works. He was presumably an American composer and songwriter of popular music with Chicago connections. Hurricane Rag
(1911) appears to be his only rag and it was published by Harold Rossiter Music Co.
, Chicago, Illinois. He also wrote two songs in the early 1920s which were published by T.S. Denison & Co.
, also of Chicago.
