Paul Whiteman Autographs, Memorabilia & Collectibles

Born: March 28, 1890 in Denver, Colorado
Died: December 29, 1967 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania
Paul Whiteman (1890-1967), led a U.S. Navy band before forming his own group in San Francisco. In 1920, a year after he began recording, Whiteman had his first hit with "Whispering". In 1924, he introduced George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue", which was specially arranged for Whiteman's 35-piece orchestra. Known as "The King of Jazz", Whiteman starred in a film of the same name in 1930. The film featured one of his newest discoveries, singer Bing Crosby, one of the many crooners who got their start with Whiteman's orchestra. Whiteman and his orchestra also appeared in Strike Up The Band (1940), Rhapsody in Blue (1945) and The Fabulous Dorseys (1947). From 1949-1952, he hosted The Paul Whiteman Goodyear Revue.
