Carrie Minetta Jacobs-Bond was born in Janesville, Wisconsin, and died in Hollywood. After education in Janesville, she appeared in vaudeville, sang at the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt, and gave concerts in Army Camps in World War I. Besides ‘ A Perfect Day’, she also composed the celebrated ‘I love you truly’ (1901). Her lyricist in the present song was Frank Lebby Stanton, a journalist born in Charleston, South Carolina, who also wrote the words for ‘Mighty lak a rose’ and became Georgia’s first poet laureate.
