No, his name is not on the covers, but a lot of the Berlin tunes had covers
by Leff. He was one of Berlin's favorite artists. The website above
identifies the cover artist of Yes Sir That's My Baby. On the right side of
the page next to the cover.

BTW, that web site is a treasure. Lots of cover pictures, piano renditions
of songs etc., both verse and chorus. Worth a surf. Here is the site again.
