Frederick Kohner (1905–1986)

Kohner's daughter, Kathy, would come home from her days at Malibu Beach and relay the stories of the day to her father which he in turn combined to write a best selling book, "Gidget." The book later became a premise for a handful of movies and a television series. See full bio »
