Henry Rosenthal, 1918-2011
August 15, 2011
The C-SPAN Archives lost one of its valued employees over the weekend. Henry Rosenthal came to work for us in his retirement years. He answered phones, indexed programs, filed, shipped, scanned, and shredded. He loved C-SPAN and would step up to any task. Henry led a remarkable life and encouraged many a young person in his career. He was a voice of Purdue and high school sports in Lafayette on the radio station he owned. His obituary cites his many honors.
For the C-SPAN family, we owe Henry for his early recognition of enthusiasm and talent. He hired the very young Brian Lamb when Brian was still in high school and showed up at the radio station and wanted to work. Brian worked at the radio station during high school and college and used what he learned from Henry in his own career.
Today, we remember Henry for his smile, his jokes, his integrity, his mentorship, his leadership, and his friendship. Henry, you left a legacy.
