Clarence Williams

(October 8th 1893 - November 6th 1965)

Born in Plaquemine, Louisiana he ran away from home to join a minstrel show when he was twelve and went on to become a favorite pianist, promoter, and publisher in New Orleans by the mid-1910s. Following a brief tour with W.C. Handy, Williams established a publishing office in Chicago, and then New York by the early '20s. There he married Eva Taylor and would be a continuing source of race record hits throughout the decade.
