Arnold H Glasow

Arnold Henry Glasow was born in Fond-du-lac, Wisconsin, USA, in 1905, and died in Freeport, Illinois in 1998 aged 93. Arnold Glasow graduated from Ripon College, and started his own business when he moved to Freeport just after the Great Depression. His business was a humour magazine that he marketed to firms nationally, which firms would turn into their own 'House Organ' to send to their own customers. He ran this business for over sixty years but didn't publish his first book until aged 92. The book was titled 'Glasow's Gloombusters'. He was cited frequently in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune and many other major publications. Also a regular contributor to the humour pages of Reader's Digest magazine.

Sixty years of productive work. Many accolades. A real American thinker, self-effacing and of generous spirit, Arnold Glasow shunned the public spotlight.
