James Scott (1885-1938) was 18 years younger than Scott Joplin but the two men met in Missouri. Joplin was always keen to help and support other composers and, noting Scott's skills as a pianist and ragtime composer, he introduced the younger man to his own regular publisher John Stillwell Stark. The first James Scott piece published by Stark was the "Frogs Legs Rag". Although Scott had had other rags published prior to this, the "Frogs Legs Rag" proved to be a major success for the composer. Scott composed many other piano rags before moving onto other musical pursuits when the popularity of ragtime started to give way to jazz.
