Breaking News: In Memoriam: Harry Rosenberg, CAS

Former PPAI Board Chair and PPAI Hall of Fame inductee Harry Rosenberg, CAS, president of St. Louis, Missouri-based Specialty Advertising Consultants, Inc., passed away on April 23 at age 91. He enjoyed an extraordinary 67-year career as an industry supplier, consultant and long-time PPAI volunteer.

Rosenberg served four years on the PPAI board and as chair from 1975-76. In 1983, he was inducted into the PPAI Hall of Fame.

Rosenberg joined the industry after attending a semester at Washington University, when he started working at his family’s company, Universal Match Corporation. When the company was sold in 1950, he and his two brothers-in-law bought supplier Ritepoint, which was then based in St. Louis. He ran the company until 1980 when he officially retired. He then formed Specialty Advertising Consultants, serving as a consultant to industry suppliers, a role he transitioned to part-time in recent years.

He and his wife, Ginny, were married for 68 years and had two children, six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchilden.

Harry was in every sense a good man. He was my first mentor and my friend and guide for over forty years. He was the first inductee into my personal Hall of Fame. Condolences to his family. "If there's another world, he lives in bliss; if there is none, he made the best of this." Mark
