Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jack Selig Yellen (Jacek Jele ) (July 6, 1892 - April 17, 1991) was a Jewish-American lyricist and screenwriter. Born in Poland, Yellen emigrated with his family to the United States when he was five years old. He grew up in Buffalo, New York and began writing songs in high school. He graduated with honors from the University of Michigan in 1913 and after graduating became a reporter for the Buffalo Courier, continuing to write songs on the side. Yellen's first collaborator on a song was George L. Cobb, with whom he wrote a number of Dixie songs including "Alabama Jubilee," "Are You From Dixie?," and "All Aboard for Dixieland." He is best remembered for his collaboration with composer Milton Ager. He and Ager entered the music publishing business as part owners of the Ager-Yellen-Bernstein Music Company.
