Dave Stamper  (1883-1963)
Last updated: 11.10.21
According to the Internet source given below, Dave Stamper was an American songwriter born in New York City.
Active in the Tin Pan Alley and vaudeville eras, he contributed to twenty-one editions of the Ziegfeld Follies. He wrote for the Fox Film Corporation and is said to have composed of more than one thousand songs being self-taught without a formal music education.
Aged ten, he took up piano and when seventeen he became a pianist at a Coney Island dance hall for two years before becoming a "song-plugger" for F. A. Mills. In 1910 he teamed with Gene Buck to provide lyrics for his melodies. Their first published songs were In the Cool of the Evening , Daddy Has a Sweetheart (and Mother Is Her Name) (1912) and Some Boy (1912). The pair were celebrated in the 1936 film The Great Ziegfeld - John Hyams played Stamper and William Demarest played Buck.
Of ragtime interest is his That Shakespearian Rag (1912) published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
He died in Poughkeepsie, New York.
