Biography: Sam Levenson (December 28, 1911-August 27, 1980), American humorist, writer, and journalist. Born Samuel Levenson, he grew up in a large Jewish immigrant family in Brooklyn, New York. He was a teacher before writing the best-seller Sex and the Single Child (1969), In One Era And Out The Other (1973), and You Can Say That Again, Sam! (1975). He hosted the "Sam Levenson Show" from 1959 to 1964. He was a guest host on The Price is Right and was a panelist on many other television programs. Levenson also had a cameo in the film A Face in the Crowd. Levenson also wrote the well-known poem "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild, which has become falsely attributed to Audrey Hepburn.

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 graces the hall's rear wall.
