Samuel Lubell (Lubelsky) (1911-1987) was an influential writer and public opinion analyst known for his successful election predictions in the 1950s and 1960s using voter interviews. Born in 1911 in Poland, he came to the United States with his parents when he was two years old, settling in New York. He attended City College of New York as an undergraduate and the Columbia School of Journalism for his graduate education. In 1933, he received the school’s Pulitzer Traveling Scholarship. After graduation, he worked for several newspapers, moving to Washington in 1938 to work for the Washington Post and later The Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Washington Herald. It was during this time that he began a twenty-one-year freelancing relationship with the Saturday Evening Post.
