William E. Studwell: "From 'Jingle Bells' to 'Jingle Bell Rock': Sketches of Obscure or Fading American Popular Christmas Songwriters, 1857-1957 (and a Little Beyond)". In: Music Reference Services Quarterly 5 (1996) 1, S. 1 - 20. "Though we are familiar with the many enduring and even classic American popular Christmas songs that are reprieved every holiday season, the creators of most of these songs are obscure or fading from the collective American consciousness. In an effort to help preserve their names and accomplishments, 23 sketches of 34 popular Christmas songwriters are presented" (BUBL).
