Donald Post (March 14, 1902 – November 17, 1979), dubbed by many as The Godfather of Halloween, created and sold some of the first latex masks, which remain popular today.

Career[edit]

In the 1970s, Post made masks of such actors as Tor Johnson and William Shatner, the latter of which was slightly altered in the 1978 film, Halloween, into the infamous Michael Myers mask.

Legacy[edit]

In the 1980s, Post and his company, Don Post Studios, also produced some of the rarer masks of the classic Cenobites from the Hellraiser franchise. The company is currently owned by the Paper Magic Group.
