Fletcher Henderson

(December 18th 1897 - December 29th 1952)

James Fletcher Henderson, Jr. was born in Cuthbert, Georgia in 1897. After graduating from Atlanta University in 1920 Fletcher moved to New York to attend Columbia University where he hoped to earn his masters degree in Chemistry. Due to racial discrimination he was not permitted to work in his chosen field and turned to music as a back up. With aspirations of being a chemist dashed, in his secondary profession as a pianist/composer Fletcher Henderson would become the leader of one of the most popular large jazz ensembles in New York during the 1920s.
