Hugh Hefner

1926-

Publisher

Hugh Hefner has achieved an unusual fame as the publisher of the most famous men's magazine, Playboy. Although the magazine is principally devoted to displaying photographs of nude women, it is also known for its substantive articles on politics and other issues of the day.

In 1988, after a period of declining readership, Hefner's daughter assumed the editorship of the magazine, helping to boost its circulation once more.
