Hasbro was founded by two brothers, Henry and Hillel Hassenfeld, in a small office in Providence, Rhode Island. Originally named Hassenfeld Brothers, the Company first sold textile remnants, but soon moved into manufacturing pencil boxes and school supplies. In 1964, Hasbro launched the world's first "action figure" - G.I. JOE. The designers at Hasbro wanted to provide boys with a poseable figure as a plaything, but no one thought boys would play with a "doll," hence the creation of the term "action figure." G.I. JOE was a huge success from the start and more than 45 years later, G.I. JOE has become an American icon and is still tremendously popular with kids.

Mr. Hassenfeld has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He has numerous honorary degrees from prestigious universities around the world. He lives in Rhode Island, USA with his wife of nineteen years.
