This chapter presents the text of Alexander Woollcott's article titled George the Ingenuous, which was published in the November 1933 issue of Hearst's International-Cosmopolitan magazine. In this article, Woollcott describes his first meeting with composer George Gershwin and his observation about Gershwin's personality. He writes that Gershwin was profoundly interested in himself but he has no habit of pretense and he says exactly what he thinks.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Alexander Woollcott, personality, composer, musicians
