Shaun Glenville (1884-1968)
For more information on Shaun Glenville and Dorothy Ward, as well as a collection of interesting photographs, see the website: http://www.its-behind-you.com/wardglenville.html.Both Shaun Glenville and Dorothy Ward were good friends of Fred Godfrey’s, and Glenville wrote several songs with him (see the entry under Glenville in the “Collaborators” section). He probably performed them as well, but is known to have recorded just two Godfrey songs, both in 1915: Where Did You Get The Name Of Hennessy? (Regal G-7607) and The Yiddisher Irish Baby (Levi, Carney, Jacob, Barney, Michael Isaacstein) (Regal G-7221). According to sheet music covers, Glenville performed, but did not record, at least three other Godfrey songs: When An Irishman Goes Fighting (1914); Calling Me Home (1922); and My Little-Da-Monk (1930).
