Marches by E. T. Paull & Harry J. Lincoln
By Matthew Caulfield

Bill Finch writes of plans to list all known marches by E. T. Paull and
Harry J. Lincoln.  I'll try to put together a list of those I know and
post it to MMD.  But, Bill, you need to start by consulting William H.
Rehrig's "Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music" (in 3 volumes; LC record
no. 91-73637).  It will give you biographies of band composers and good
lists of their compositions.  Can't say whether it is exhaustive or not
(what is exhaustive?), but it is darn complete.

Are you sticking to marches only or all compositions?  Harry J. Lincoln
used at least one pseudonym that I know of: he composed at least two
waltzes under the name "Carl Loveland" -- Dove of Peace, and Garden of

When you've heard on E. T. Paul march you've heard them all.  But they
are stirring marches.  Lincoln's "Midnight Fire Alarm" sounds so much
like Paull that I mistakenly thought it was by Paull for a time.

Good luck and I'll see what I can find for you.
