Hugh Hefner Dies Aged 91

Hugh (Marston) Hefner the American publisher and playboy, best known as the editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine was found dead on Wednesday at his home, the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles.  His death was announced by Playboy Enterprises.

Mr. Hefner was a stunning success from the moment he emerged in the early 1950s.

The premiere issue had no date, in case it sold poorly and there wasn’t a second issue. On its cover was actress Marilyn Monroe, who also appeared in a nude centerfold — a photograph that had been originally used for a pin-up calendar.

Over the years, the legend of “Hef” grew as he bedded hundreds of young women, married a few of his magazine’s “Playmates” and cavorted on reality TV shows with a stable of girlfriends less than a third his age.

“I would like to be remembered as somebody who has changed the world in some positive way, in a social, sexual sense, and I’d be very happy with that,” Hefner told CNN. “I’m a kid who dreamed the dreams and made them come true.”
