Notable Work: Continental Publications

Ellen Cole was a letterer and editor for Continental Publications, as well as Orbit and Star, in the mid- to late-1940s. Her husband, editor and artist Leonard B. Cole, once explained her contributions:

"She was and is a very brilliant lady, at that time she edited every piece of copy that came out of the company. Well, she started to practice what was called thick and thin lettering. It was not but about a month that she became so adept at it that she was producing about 20-30 pages a day, maybe more....[E]verybody said that her lettering was about as good as it ever gets."[1]

In the 1960s, she worked as an educational and promotional filmmaker. She had at least one daughter and one grandson.
