Jean Murray: Music

The Man Who Struck It Rich In the Klondike

(Vocal, Dana Hart; piano, Genie Loser)
Several successful gold miners fit the description of the man in this 1898 song. "Tammany's van Wyck," in the chorus refers to Robert van Wyck, the successful 1897 Tammany Hall candidate for mayor of New York City.
