The hap piest years of his life, he called them, as his daughter has testified. 2 He had the very heav en of being young, of working on his own in a large and stimulating city, and of composing melodies rendered in polite parlors and one lusty song, U 0h Susanna, roared t by the Torty-Niners on their covered-wagon journeys to California and echoed around the world. The chronicle of these youthful years of Americas Troubadour, as John Tasker How ard 3 has happily termedStephen Foster, de serves to be told in the fullness which recent investigation now makes possible. New facts have been found which reinforce the impor tance of the three Cincinnati years in the shaping of his genius. In this instance time and place were right for him. 4 It was in Cincinnati that Stephen-Foster worked as a bookkeeper for a steamboat com mission firm, thus dutifully meeting the wishes of his family. The persistent vitality of this tune is illustrated by its use as a party song eighty years later in the Presidential campaign of 1936. 2 Youths Golden Gleam It was there that he rounded into manhood, his personality enlarging under the cultural influences of the Queen City of the West. It was in Cincinnati, with its exceptional musical environment, that he completed his self-education and advanced from apprentice ship into the mastery of his musical creative ness. It was there, with Kentucky across the river and negro roustabouts singing on the wharves, that he came to know the South and negro life. It was there that he met the performers of theatrical minstrelsy and began professionally to compose for them. It was there that the die was cast he would not follow business he would make his career as a composer of music. In addition to the three years of his resi dence we have records of a journey from Pitts burgh to Cincinnati with his mother and sister when Stephen was a small boy, and of another visit, along with his wife and daughter, when he was a man of thirty-two. These are here set forth in due order. In this chronicle there is every effort to avoid prettifying and exaggeration and to tell simply and in proportion the story as it emerges from letters, newspapers, courtrec ords, church records and other documents of the era. Because it inspired and gave color and feeling to the songs of Stephen Foster, his background of these years is sketched some what fully the river, the city, and the near Prefatory 3 by South...
