(1923–93) literary agent; born in New York City. He tried his hand at writing short stories before founding the Scott Meredith Literary Agency with his brother in 1946. P. G. Wodehouse was his first prominent client; he later represented many best-selling authors including Norman Mailer. He introduced the concept of auctioning a book to the highest bidding publisher. His Writing to Sell, a how-to guide for aspiring authors, was still in print at the time of his death.
