It is amazing that several sources suggest this bandleader was a mere pseudonym and never existed (although for several recordings may well have been used his name); it is the sad proof of the total oblivion he got lost into. It is said he formed his first band in Ithaca, New York. He is listed as the drummer and occasionally as the vocalist on recording sessions. His main group was Bob Causer and His Cornellians, but before had also led Bob Causer's Big Four. Whiteman took the group to New York City for both concerts and recording sessions, including three sides for Victor. Causer's bands comprised several brilliant young talents, including vocalist Russ Morgan and trumpeter Bunny Berigan. This recording however was made in 1932. Vocal by Dick Robertson.

Fred, I'm pretty convinced too they all were involved in the studio recording process to some extent. Possibly the credits are referring to the person who produced the session without necessarily conducting it. Often it may well have merely been a commercial decision, depending on the name that was expected to sell best.

An A.R.C. studio recording We can be pretty sure that Bob was involved in some capacity. But it's hard to figure out just how, The other recording made this day was issued under both Bob Causer and Ed Loyd's name and we know he was a real person also, (Ed Kirkeby). You would be amazed at just how many names were used on these recordings and probably most were involved with the studio in some way. Freddy Martin recorded for them from 1932 through 1937 and except for a few sides in 1932 his name was not used on any of his recordings from Jan 1933 through Sept 1933. he recorded well over fifty sides in that time period almost all were issued under Bob Causers name. In late Sept They moved him to their primary label Brunswick at which time he used his real name. There is probably a very simple explanation for all of this but I have no idea what it is.
