Meet Harold Spitz, Steve Spitz Dad

Steve Spitz was born to his father Harold “Hal” Spitz. Harold was born in Los Angeles on 20 February 1925 and came from a family history rooted in classical music. He was the son of Edward A Spitz, the founder of Guest Informant, a directory of tourist information distributed in 1,400 hotels across the country, and Francis Spitz.

Edward was working as a deliverer of laundry in 1937 to Los Angeles hotels. During that time, he noticed that guests had no guide to local services. Hence, he started Guest Informant as a four-page brochure, and it grew into a slick hard-cover volume of more than 300 pages, published annually.

Harold lost his father in 1990 at the age of 88 to a heart attack. Besides Harold, Edward also had a daughter named Elaine Oliver based in Los Angeles.

Harold was responsible for conceptualizing and expanding the publication into 17 other U.S. cities. He and his father sold the company in 1981. Harold continued on as publisher and CEO while expanding into cities worldwide.
