DANKS, Hart Pease, musician, born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1834. He removed with his parents to Saratoga Springs, New York, and in 1850 went to Chicago, Ill. His first musical composition was inserted in Bradbury's "Jubilee," under the name of "Lake Street," and is well known. In 1856 his first song, arranged with pianoforte accompaniment, "The Old Lane," was published in Chicago, since which time he has issued several hundred. Two of them, "Silver Threads among the Gold" and "Don't be angry with me, Darling," have attained immense popularity, each selling to the extent of several hundred thousand copies. The publishers paid the author thirty dollars for the copyright, and realized several thousands. From 1858 till 1861 Mr. Danks lived in Cleveland, Ohio, from 1861 till 1864 in Chicago, and from 1864 till 1887 in New York City. He has published books of anthems that have met with favorable acceptation.
