Who Was "Cotton-Eyed Joe"??

This curious quarter-page ad ran in the back of a 1961 yearbook for St. Mary's Episcopal School. It did not appear in yearbooks before or after that. I checked. Just that one year.

So the obvious question is: Who was "Cotton-Eyed Joe" and why was he memorialized in the St. Mary's yearbook in 1961? In "loving" memory, no less.

I will patiently wait for an answer, dear readers. C'mon, I can't do this without you.
