This chapter details Sweatman’s career from 1918–20. The period, in many respects, marked the pinnacle of Sweatman’s career—his records were selling extremely well and the resultant publicity made him a desirable attraction in leading vaudeville houses. He also appeared at several Sunday Concerts at the Eltinge and Lafayette theaters in New York.
