In St. Louis in the heyday of ragtime, Giblin’s Chicken Chowder was particularly popular with ragtime orchestras. Giblin was St. Louis’ most prolific female composer, yet was unable to have any of her music even considered for publication in that city’s predominantly male music arena. Her music, like that of most of her female colleagues, was published in Kansas City, Chicago, or New York.
