About the Artist
Jack Lawrence (April 7, 1912 – March 15, 2009) was an American Academy Award-nominated songwriter. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1975. Jack Lawrence was born Jacob Lewis Schwartz in Brooklyn, New York City to an Orthodox Jewish family of modest means as the third of four sons. His parents Barney (Beryl) Schwartz and Fanny (Fruma) Goldman Schwartz were first cousins who had run away from their home in Belaya Tserkov, Ukraine to come to America in 1904. Lawrence wrote songs while still a child, but because of parental pressure after he graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School, he enrolled in the First Institute of Podiatry where he received a doctoral degree in 1932. The same year, his first song was published and he immediately decided to make a career of songwriting rather than podiatry. That song, "Play, Fiddle, Play", won international fame and he became a member of ASCAP that year at age 20. "Linda" is a popular song. It was written by Jack Lawrence, and published in 1946. The song was actually written when Lawrence was in the service during World War II, taking its name from the then five-year-old daughter of his.
