Louis Chauvin
Birth: Mar. 13, 1881
St. Louis City
Missouri, USA
Death: Mar. 26, 1908
Cook County
Illinois, USA

American Ragtime Musician. He was considered to be the finest ragtime pianist in the Saint Louis, Missouri area at the turn of the 20th century and was part of the ragtime community that congregated at Tom Turpin's Rosebud Cafe. He was born to a Mexican-Native American father and an African-American mother. Over his short lifetime, his only published works were "The Moon is Shining in the Skies" (with Sam Patterson, 1903), "Babe, It's Too Long Off" (words by Elmer Bowman, 1906), and "Heliotroupe Bouquet" (with Scott Joplin, 1907), which was made famous in the movie "The Sting" (1972) starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford. He died as a result of neurosyphilitic sclerosis. (bio by: William Bjornstad)
