William Stickles Biography?

Hi all,
 
Does anyone know anything about William Stickles (1882-1971), the prodigious arranger/composer? He wrote scads of arrangements of Broadway tunes for choirs of all voicings, but my internet searches have come up empty when I try to find anything about his life. Thanks for anything you might know or discover!
 
Best,
Frank
