Walter Donaldson is part of WikiProject Musical Theatre, organized to improve and complete musical theatre articles and coverage on Wikipedia. You can edit the article attached to this page, or visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks.
This needs to be split into sections to identify Walter's many collaborators.
I did not add or delete any songs, but added the collaborators if any. I also removed redlinks (because they were the majority) and some other links (because they led to different works with the same title). I'll try to add some more information (year, citation, show or movie if any.) Richard K. Carson (talk) 00:47, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:35, 8 October 2010 (UTC)This article states the following: It is universally believed this song was written about a World War soldier who lost his friend in battle. Well, you'll have to change this to "almost universally," because
Charles Marowitz believes differently. In his article "The Neglected Walter Donaldson," Mr. Marowitz says the following: " His most durable song may well have been My Buddy written in l922, inspired by the unexpected and heartbreaking death of his young fiancé and curiously adopted during World War II as a song about male camaraderie among the allied troops. A simple but mesmerizing waltz tune, which, sung by an evocative singer, can still subdue a noisy nightclub audience into a reverent silence".
