From page 34 of the article “The Comic Side of Trouble,” by Bert Williams, American Magazine, Vol. 85 (1918), pp. 33-34, 58, 60-61 (link fixed, 3 March 2017):

Williams, of course, is obviously not a Danish name. Nobody in America knows my real name, and, if I can prevent it no one ever will. That was the only promise I made to my father.
