Hugh Hefner is well-known around the world for his enormously successful Playboy magazines. This political leader and philanthropist was an outspoken supporter of free speech and sexual emancipation, which explains how he got into his line of work in the first place.
He joined the army in 1944, shortly after graduating from high school, which is hard to understand given his demeanor. Hugh went on to become an army clerk and submitted several of his paintings to US Army journals, which served to enhance military morale. Many of his drawings were entertaining to read (that’s what everyone says), and they may have served as a springboard for his ideas for the Playboy magazines.
