Sam Levenson was an American humorist, writer, teacher, television host and journalist. He graduated from Brooklyn College in 1934. He had many best selling books and one was called In One Era And Out The Other. The 150-seat Sam Levenson Recital Hall at Brooklyn College was named after him in 1988 in gratitude for his donations over the years to the Performing Arts Center. A glazed porcelain bust of him graced the hall’s rear wall.
