Lawrence Welk was born on 11 March 1901, and, even though he was born in Strasburg, North Dakota, he never lost the accent of his German-speaking parents. Prior to completing fourth grade, Lawrence quit school and went to work on the family farm. He launched his musical career by convincing his father to purchase a mail-order accordion. In return, Lawrence promised his father to work on the farm until he turned 21.
