As God as my witness, I could not find a picture of this man. So, here's the neat-o cover of one of his books.


Clifton Fadiman

1904 - June 20th, 1999

Excerpt from AP obituary:

SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - Clifton Fadiman, a writer, book editor, radio and television entertainer who was host of the popular radio show ``Information Please'' in the 1930s, died Sunday. He was 95.

For many who knew him, Fadiman probably will be best remembered for his mostly anonymous role as senior judge for the Book-of-the-Month Club. It's a relationship he fostered for more than half a century, starting in the early '40s. Despite losing his sight, he continued to make selections, listening to audio versions well into his 90s.

And now, because nobody asked, here's E-Brake's two cents:

This guy was quite the renaissance man, with a huge collection of one-liners and potent potables, but he leaves us with perhaps one of the great Dairy Quotes of all time:

"Cheese - Milk's leap towards immortality."

'Nuff said.
