Biographical Sketch Mrs. Addie Wilson (née Anderson), known as
Miss Addie, was an influential figure in Dothan, Alabama, and a prominent
musician and songwriter. She was born in Lawrenceville, Houston County,
Alabama, and moved to Dothan as a child. Mrs. Wilson attended Brenau
College in Gainesville, Georgia, and studied under composer Bruno Michaelis.
She married W. S. Wilson, from Cowarts, Houston County, Alabama, owner and

children musical band called Dothan’s Toy Orchestra in 1924. “Welcome to
Dothan” published in 1914, was the first song she wrote. She also wrote
“Under the Rose” which was performed by the U.S. Marine Band and played over
national radio during World War II. In 1949 she became Dothan’s first Woman
of the Year, and the National Federation of Music Clubs recognizes her for
her contributions to American Music. Miss Addie died October 8, 1966, at
Dothan Nursing Home.
