Biographical notes[edit]

EDWIN CHRISTIE was the composer of ten tunes in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883). He is sometimes confused with the blackface minstrel performer Edwin Christy, however, Edwin Christie was a member of a Boston family of performers that also included George, Henry, Kate and Helen. "One of these Christies also led a quadrille band the worked out of 103 Court Street, Boston, in the 1870s, which was [music publisher] Elias Howe's address at the time" [1].
