Charles G. Dawes…

is the only vice-president and Nobel Peace Prize winner with a No. 1 pop hit in both Britain and America.

Dawes “was a self-taught pianist and composer whose 1912 ‘Melody in A Major‘ was given words in 1951 to become the popular song titled ‘It’s All In The Game.’ ¬†Recorded by countless artists who ranged from Nat King Cole to Donny & Marie Osmand, it made Dawes the only vice-president and Nobel Peace Prize winner with a No. 1 pop hit in both Britain and America.” ¬†(Al Capone: His Life, Legacy and Legend by Deirdre Bair, page 175)
