Henry Denker
HENRY DENKER (November 25, 1912 – May 15, 2012) was an American novelist and playwright. Denker was admitted to the New York Bar in 1935, at the height of the Depression, and he soon left law practice to earn his living by writing. His legal training was reflected in many of his works.

In another case, Denker served a summons on heavyweight champion Jack Johnson. Denker was married for 61 years to Edith Heckman, whom he met when he was a patient and she was a nurse in Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. Denker was the originator and writer of what he describes as the “first television series ever produced,” False Witness, on NBC-TV in 1939
