Jerry Gershon Mayer
Birth: Apr. 16, 1891
Death: Sep. 29, 1947

Motion Picture Executive. The brother of movie mogul Louis B. Mayer, he was born Gershon Meir in Brooklyn. After working as an industrial executive in Montreal, he became plant manager of Louis B. Mayer Productions in 1918 and location manager for the newly formed MGM in 1924. The brothers quarreled frequently and in 1930 he set himself up as a talent agent, representing such stars as Nils Asther and Anita Page; the elder Mayer undermined his business by refusing to deal with any of his clients. Chastened, he returned to MGM and served as its General Manager from 1938 until his death. In this position he played an unheralded but important role in seeing the studio through its most profitable years. He died of cancer. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
