Gustav Luders  (1865-1913)
Last updated: 17.10.18
According to the Internet source given below, Gustav Luders was a German-born American composer of popular music and wrote a number of Broadway operettas. Born in Bremen, Germany, he studied in Europe before emigrating to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1888. After establishing himself as an arranger at Witmark Publishing, Chicago with the recommendation of Charles K. Hall, he wrote his first operetta Little Robinson Crusoe (1899). This was followed by King Dodo (1902), The Prince of Pilsen (1903), Woodland (1904), The Sho Gun (1904), The Grand Mogul (1907), Marcelle (1908), 'The Fair Co-ed (1908), The Gypsy on Broadway (1912) and finally Somewhere Else (1913). He enjoyed much success with all his work, especially The Sho Gun, but excepting his final work Somewhere Else which flopped after just 8 performances which resulted in a fatal heart attack. His Heidelberg Stein Song (1902) from The Sho Gun was enormously popular with male-voice choirs at that time throughout America.
