Fred L. Ryder 
Last updated: 07.08.18
Virtually nothing is known about Fred L. Ryder other than those bare facts which can be gleaned from the covers of his original sheet music. He was apparently a composer of popular music which included marches, waltzes, songs etc. He is perhaps best known for the still recorded St. Louis Exposition March (1904). Of ragtime interest is his Jag-Time Johnson's Rag-Time March (1901).
