"One of twelve marches Sousa composed for various expositions or fairs, 'The Pathfinder of Panama' was dedicated to the Panama Canal and the Panama-Pacific Exposition, held in San Francisco in 1915. Sousa's Band played a nine-week engagement at the exposition. The march was composed at the request of Walter Anthony, a reporter for the 'San Francisco Call'.
