Arthur was an award-winning direct marketer for over 50 years. After graduating from City College, he got his start pioneering computer technology at Standard Oil. He invented “Me Books” and innovated de-duplication of mailing list technology.

His most treasured occupation, however, was that of Husband, Father, and Grandfather. From driving across state lines to hiking Mount Masada, he stopped at nothing to support his family. He made everyone smile by handing out “million dollar bills,” which gave him his famous aliases, King Arthur and Million Dollar Grandpa. He was able to afford this because he was priceless: constantly sporting an ear-to-ear grin and singing his favorite show tunes.
