Roger Williams 
Last updated: 27.04.22
Roger Williams is another obscure ragtime era composer of which nothing is presently known. His two known works were published by an Australian publisher in Melbourne. Whether he was a native-born Digger or an immigrant is still to be determined. Of ragtime interest is his Luna Park Rag (1909).
