Sherman Dudley - 1899

from Ragged but right / Lynn Abbott, page 14:

I remember when I was travelling with the 'Original Nashville Students' way back in 1899, when we were playing all one-night stands. Every time I would pass a little white child, it would start singing 'All Coons Look Alike To Me,' and those who could not sing would whistle it.
