“CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED JUNIOR was the brainchild of Russian-born Albert Lewis Kanter, a visionary publisher who deserves to be ranked among the great teachers of the 20th century. Born in Baranovitch, Russia on April 11, 1897, he immigrated with his family to the United States in 1904. From 1941 to 1971, he introduced young readers to the realms of literature, history, folklore, mythology, and science in such juvenile series as CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED, CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED JUNIOR, CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED SPECIAL ISSUES, and THE WORLD AROUND US.”
- William B. Jones Jr.; Author; Classics Illustrated: A Cultural History; (McFarland & Co., Publishers)
