A vaudevillian since childhood, he grew up as one of The Four Cohans, a family of entertainers that included parents Nellie and Jerry and older sister Josephine. George began writing hit songs in the early 1890s for New York's Tin Pan Alley, and before he was 18 he was in charge of the family's act. Cohan was the toast of New York between 1904 and 1920 More »
