Hello Mark,
Harriet Janis was Rudi's partner not only in writing THEY ALL PLAYED
RAGTIME, but also, I believe, in Circle records, which recorded some
very good jazz (not always "strictly from Dixie," despite Blesh's
reputation, but all OKOM).  Also, she is, I believe, the mother of the
cornetist Conrad Janis.
