This chapter looks at the role of Kay Swift in the preparation for the 1939 New York World's Fair as director of light music. It explains that fair president Grover Whalen wanted a song by George Gershwin to commemorate the fair and to honor the recently deceased American composer and Swift collaborated with George's brother Ira to produce the fair's theme song titled Dawn of a New Day. It also discusses Swift's relationship with Faye Hubbard and her marriage to Hunter Galloway in 1947.
