"Triumphant Lindbergh" by Harry J. Lincoln
By Matthew Caulfield

The march "Triumphant Lindbergh" was composed by Harry J. Lincoln,
who is pretty famous and well represented on band organ rolls.  So
it is surprising that Burl Updyke didn't find any information about
the tune.

"Triumphant Lindbergh" was copyrighted January 7, 1928, and is one
of the eight Lincoln marches on Wurlitzer style 125 roll number 3135,
issued in 1928 and titled "Marches Full of Snap and Pep."  Two of the
eight Lincoln marches on that roll were composed under his pseudonym,
"Abe Losch."

The tune also appears on Wurlitzer's style 150 roll number 13157,
which has the same ten tunes as roll 3135, but in reverse order.  The
reason may be that known copies are a T.R.T. recut, and Ralph Tussing
could have reversed the original 150 tune order in making the recut.
