Biographical / Historical

Walter Klein began his career in advertising as a staff member at The Charlotte Observer in 1946, following his service in World War II. Soon thereafter, Klein founded Walter J. Klein Co., which became one of North Carolina's largest full-service advertising agencies. They soon passed all other Carolina agencies with $1 million in annual billings and then they switched entirely to TV production and distribution. Harry Golden was a Jewish-American writer and newspaper publisher. His films were produced at the Klein Studios. Klein also assisted Harry Golden with the Carolina Israelite and other promotions for his works. They were good friends and business associates.
