QRS Artist Stanford Robar is Lee S. Roberts
By Robert Perry

Hi all,  Recently I've been chasing information about the lives of
the roll artists.  I managed to find Lee Robert's WW1 draft card, which
revealed his real name was Leland Stanford Roberts -- which makes it
a certainty that he's also Stanford Robar, who recorded a lot of rags
and other pop material for QRS.

This isn't something that appears in Billings or other sources, so
I thought it may not be widely known and something that's worth knowing.
