Art Lund (1 April 1915, Salt Lake City, Utah — 31 May 1990, Holliday, Utah ) was a famous baritone singer, initially with bandleaders Benny Goodman and Harry James, and was also a television and stage actor. Arthur Lund was a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, and received his master's degree from the United States Naval Academy in aerological engineering. Lund was a teacher of mathematics at a high school in Kentucky, and sang with local bands as a sideline before giving up school teaching to tour with Jimmy Ray's orchestra. He originally billed himself as Art London. After spells with Benny Goodman and Harry James, he went solo in 1946, and recorded his biggest seller the following year. The song was "Mam'selle", written by Mack Gordon (lyrics) and Edmund Goulding (melody). This gramophone record was #1 in the U.S. Billboard magazine chart and earned a gold disc.
