Leroy Anderson (1908-1975) was born of Swedish parents, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.   He studied music at Harvard University, and was active in all kinds of musical activity in the Boston area.  He was also a gifted linguist, speaking German, Italian, French and Portuguese as well as every single scandinavian language.
