Irving Berlin


Russian-American composer of over a thousand songs who also wrote music for films. His works included "Alexander's Ragtime Band," 1911, "White Christmas," "There's No business Like Show Business" and "Remember."

His family came to the U.S. when he was a child of five. While working as a singing waiter, he began writing songs, with his first published song in 1907. He received the Medal of Merit and the Congressional Gold Medal. He also was awarded the French Legion of Honor and in 1942 won an Oscar for the song "White Christmas." In 1986, he came out of seclusion to receive the Medal of Liberty from Pres. Ronald Reagan. Irving Kern gave this quote about Berlin: "Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He is American music.

Penfield Collection quotes Drew, who gave neither time nor location. She pictured a chart for MC 7 Aries, ASC 24 Cancer which LMR computed as 9:07 AM LMT. The Old-file has 7:00 AM. In 1979, Penfield quotes Kassandra K., "Horoscopes of Composers" for 9:15 AM, "from Drew." Ziegler had 12:41 PM LMT from Kenny. A news broadcast on 5/11/1988 said that he was celebrating his 100th birthday
