The Post reported that a memorial service was held in February at Arlington National Cemetery for Lt. James Reese Europe, who is buried there. Europe, who grew up in DC, is not only one of the most historically important American musicians, but a significant figure in American history of that period. The April and May 1987 Tailgate issues contain biographical information on Europe and a discussion of his music. There are, however, significant works that have been published on Europe. One important work, “A Life in Ragtime”, by Reid Badger, contains information provided by Europe’s son (Oxford U. Press, 1995). Other works in which Europe figures prominently are:

   From Harlem to the Rhine, by Col. Arthur D. Little, Covici, Friede, NY, 1936; Jazz, A History of the New York Scene, by Samuel Charters and Len Kunstadt, Da Capo Press, 1962, 1981; and Reminiscing with Sissle and Blake, William Bolcomb, ed. -Ed.
