Professor Charlie Lee — Stack-a-Lee — 1897

While there is not a recording, this is the earliest reference to the song.

It is understood that Prof. Charlie Lee, the piano thumper, will play 'Stack-a-Lee' in variations at the K. C. Negro Press association. Scarcely any convention held in K. C. is complete unless Prof. Lee is down on the program. The professor is an idol on such a high pedestal in Kansas City that men, women and children fall on their knees in worship of him.
-- Leavenworth Herald, August 21, 1897, [p. 2].
