Albert G. Saalfield
Birth: Jul. 24, 1886
Death: Feb. 7, 1959

Publisher and developer of one of the largest lines of books for children in America, also inventor of games and originator of activity books for children. He always regarded as his greatest commerical coup, the signing of Shirley Temple to a contract early in her moving picture career. An avid movie fan, he saw Shirley in one of her first pictures. Her contract gave Mr. Saalfield printing rights to everything she endorsed. Resulting in the sales running over the 50,000,000 mark of books by and about Shirley, about 40 in all.  (bio by: Laurie)
