Harry Donenfeld was born around October 16, 1893 There does not seem to be any documentation to pinpoint either his exact birth date, or the place in Romania he was born to Jewish parents. He would take eventually take over his brothers’ printing business. After hiring Jack Liebowitz, subject of episode #94, through a series of business deals Harry would be leading the dominant comic book company for decades, until the rise of Marvel Comics in the 1960’s. He and Jack are considered the villains to many Superman fans in Siegel’s and Shuster’s struggles over the copyright to Superman.
