Charles Edward Wellinger (b Hamilton ca 1889, d London, England 10 Aug 1956; buried in Toronto), apparently also a trained pianist, worked in Hamilton, Ont, with I.W. Lomas at the opera house and probably with Lomas' Royal Connaught Winter Garden Dance Orchestra. He wrote and published several songs, waltzes, and rags. His Intermission Rag (Roger Graham 1919) was arranged for orchestra, and his most popular work, That Captivating Rag (Wellinger 1914), was reprinted by The Ragtimer (vol 6, no. 1, 1967) and recorded by John Arpin.
