Publisher. She worked her way through the ranks of Dell Publishing to become one of the first women to lead a major publishing company. She began working for Dell in 1923. She was the firm's president and chief executive from the early 1950s until it was sold to Doubleday & Co. in 1976. During that time, she pushed for and championed a profitable line of comic books featuring Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters, and led the firm into hardback publishing with Delacorte Press. After Dell was sold, she worked as a consultant until her contract ended in 1982. Helen Meyer, who was born in Brooklyn, attended New York City public schools. She was inducted into the Publishers Hall of Fame in 1986. She was 95. (bio by: anonymus)
