The well-known Maple Leaf Rag is one of Joplin's early works, written in 1899. It has been recorded by countless artists and has come back into the mainstream after the Ragtime revival of the 1970's.
Joplin lived and performed for a while in Sedalia, Missouri, working at the "Maple Leaf Club", from where some believe the work got its name.
