Bio:
Harry Chesler, Jr., generally known by the quirky appelation Harry "A" Chesler, was the entrepreneur behind what is often credited as the first comic book "packager" of the late 1930s to 1940s Golden Age of comic books, supplying complete comics to publishers testing the waters of the emerging medium. The "A" was an affectation rather than a true initial, and Chesler sometimes quipped that it stood for "anything." His studio was located at 28th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York City.

Date of Birth:
Birthplace:


Notes:
Chesler was almost never credited with the suffix, "Jr." However, in at least one known case he was: the statement of ownership in Dynamic Comics #19 says that "Jr." was "on leave to the U.S. Army", and indicates that Harry "A" Chesler (senior) was the business manager in his stead.

Since the suffix "Sr." is not actually used in the statement, however, this presents a problem of identification. The fact that Chesler, Jr. was rarely credited as "Jr." makes things even more complicated. Both father and son were generally credited as Harry "A" Chesler, making precise identification practically impossible from at least October 1945 onwards.
