Sell, Henry

The New York representative of the multi-millionaire William Randolph Hearst - and editor of "Harper"s Bazaar". During the Depression, he was bankrolled by the newspaper tycoon.

This enabled him, by chance, to keep the nearly-bankrupt Waldorf-Astoria and Ritz-Carlton hotels alive with his sybaritic blasts.

He also invented a canned liver paté, which is still sold under the name of 'Sell"s'. See 'Sybarite'
