Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Moe Jaffe (October 23, 1901 - December 2, 1972) was a songwriter and bandleader who composed more than 250 songs. He is best known for six: "Collegiate" (which was played by Chico Marx in the movie "Horse Feathers"), "The Gypsy in My Soul," "If I Had My Life to Live Over," "If You Are But a Dream," "Bell Bottom Trousers," and "I'm My Own Grandpa." Jaffe was born into a Jewish family in Vilna, Lithuania, which at the time was part of the Russian Empire. Shortly after his birth, the family emigrated to America and settled in Keyport, New Jersey. After graduating from Keyport High School, Jaffe worked his way through the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School (class of '23) and the University of Pennsylvania Law School (class of '26) by playing piano and leading a campus dance band, Jaffe's Collegians.show more
