In 1931, Neuberger and his partner, Robert Berman, founded the brokerage firm of Neuberger & Berman. The firm specialized in investing in undervalued stocks.

1Writing number one as a roman numeral one while a panelist on "To Tell The Truth"


1In a chat with Peggy Cass, a co-panelist on What's My Line?, referring to her husband Moss Hart, she said he loved to see me in red satin and diamonds. Oh, I would get all done up for him.
2[on filming 'A Night at the Opera'] Groucho would come up to from time to time to ask me,'Is this funny?'' Then, totally deadpan, he'd try out the line. I'd say, 'No, I don't think it is funny', and he'd go away absolutely crushed and try it out on everyone else in the cast. Chico was always playing cards in the back room and had to be called on the set. Harpo would work well until about eleven o'clock. Then he'd stretch out on the nearest piece of furniture and start calling at the top of his voice, 'Lunchie! Lunchie!'
3On time: Each morning I wake up and say, "Dear Lord, I don't want anything better; just send me more of the same."
4My mother once said to me, 'Kitty, once you're past fifty, every fifteen minutes it's breakfast.
5I think people today aren't learning as much as we did. They don't understand world politics, they really don't understand geography. They don't know where anything is.
6"I never remarried. When you've had the best of it, why fiddle around? He was so wonderful. He was so witty and it was such fun to be with him. I loved it and I loved him." KC - referring to late husband Moss Hart.
7[Celebrity] these days it's based on, how should I put it, vulgarity. We had standards and we didn't allow other people to debase our standards. It was a different time.


1She served as Chairman of the NYS Council on the Arts, under Governors (both Republican and Democratic), for twenty-years (1976-1996)and continued as Chairman Emeritus until her passing in 2007, and never accepted a salary for doing so.
2Was a Girl Scout.
3Was the first female guest replacement following the death of Dorothy Kilgallen on the What's My Line? (1950) panel in November of 1965.
4Bought her Madison Avenue apartment in 1962 after the death of her husband, Moss Hart, for $100,000. As of July 2007, it's on the market for $12.5 million.
5In 1970, she became romantically involved with former New York Governor and two-time Republican presidential candidate Thomas E. Dewey, and they spoke of marriage. However, Dewey died suddenly of a heart attack in early 1971.
6A notorious fashion hound, she was an early patron of Scaasi. She claims she was "Scaasified" ever since the designer dressed her for the London opening of "My Fair Lady" in the late 1950s.
7Her one-woman act in 2005 consists of anecdotes about the many great men in American musical theatre history that she has known, notably George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Kurt Weill, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein and Frederick Loewe, interspersed with a few of the songs that made each one famous.
8In later years, she was linked romantically to financier and art collector Roy Neuberger.
9Celebrated her 96th birthday with a gig at Michael Feinstein's New York hot spot "Feinstein's" at the Regency Hotel.
10At 95, she claims she exercises every day, including floor exercises, the treadmill and swimming.
11Met husband Moss Hart at a dinner party given by writer Lillian Hellman.
12She was awarded the American National Medal of the Arts in 1991 by the National Endowment of the Arts in Washington D.C.
13Son Christopher Hart (born on January 14, 1948).
14Daughter Catherine (born June 1950).
15Got her start at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The playhouse, once a grist mill (dating from the 1700s) was instrumental in turning the town into an arts center, way back when.
