This sheet music is for the song “Mr. Dooley.” The song was written by William Jerome, and composed by Jean Schwartz. The sheet music was published by Shapiro, Bernstein and Company in 1902. The cover features an image of Thomas Q. Seabrooke, a performer during the time who performed in popular Vaudeville shows such as “The Chinese Honeymoon” where the song “Mr. Dooley” originated.
