As we call the electrician to add more outlets, we might send inventive birthday greetings to Oscar Hammerstein; he was born on this date in 1847. In 1883, Oscar Hammerstein patented the cigar-rolling machine… and began to amass a fortune that he promptly reinvested in theaters and concert halls, becoming one of Americas first great impressarios… a fact worth honoring, as history tends to overlook Oscar the First in favor of his grandson, Oscar Hammerstein II, the librettist/lyricist and partner of Richard Rodgers.
