Gertrude Berg (October 3, 1898)
Gertrude Berg created, wrote, and starred in a weekly situation comedy, The Goldbergs. First on radio, then TV, she acted Molly Goldberg, a Jewish-American mother. If all the stereotypes of the Jewish mother transferred to secular Jews, we have Molly Goldberg to thank. Thanks.
