Euday Louis Bowman (November 9, 1887 in Fort Worth - May 26, 1949 in New York) was an American pianist and composer of ragtime and blues who represented the style of Texas Ragtime.
He is chiefly remembered as the composer of Twelfth Street Rag, a rag from 1914 out of a series of Ragtimes that Bowman wrote in or after a period of working as pianist in the better bordellos of Kansas City.
He lived together with his sister, Miss Mary M. Bowman, and she wrote a part of the Twelfth Street Rag, which had been a huge success, it may be the most successful ragtime written ever, but Bowman had sold it for just 100 US-Dollars.
