(1904 - 1988)
Lucille Ogle was born in Cleveland. She graduated from Case Western Reserve University and held a master’s degree from New York University.
She was a creator of the Little Golden Books, a popular children’s book series.
As the vice president of Western Publishing Company, Golden Books’s parent company, she helped develop the format for the low-priced books, which told simple stories and were among the first children’s books with full-color illustrations. The first was published in 1942.
Miss Ogle joined Western in 1936 and retired in 1969. Since then she worked as an editor and author. She wrote The Golden Picture Dictionary and edited the best-selling Golden Book Encyclopedia.
