Hubert Schlafly a key member of the team that invented the Teleprompter and rescued decades' worth of soap opera actors, newscasters and politicians from the embarrassment of stumbling over their words on live television, has died. He was 91.
Schlafly died April 20 at Stamford Hospital after a brief illness. He did not use a teleprompter himself until he was 88, while rehearsing his speech for induction into the Cable Television Hall of Fame.
Schlafly helped start the TelePrompTer Corp., eventually becoming its president and accepting an Emmy Award for the company in 1999 — a few years after winning one himself 1992 for his work in developing the first cable system permitting subscribers to order special programs.
