#Fact
1Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1972.
2In 1959, Yellen attended the fiftieth anniversary reunion of his high school graduating class. As the writer of such standards as "Happy Days Are Here Again," "My Yiddishe Momma," and "Ain't She Sweet?," he was the class celebrity. The only unimpressed person was his former English teacher, who upbraided him with, "So you're the one who wrote that 'Ain't She Sweet?'. And I thought I tought you that 'ain't' is bad grammar!"
3As a Republican, Yellen's feelings were mixed when the Democrats chose "Happy Days" as the anthem of Roosevelt's 1932 campaign.
