Oscar was an advertising man whose New York agency counted Proctor & Gamble among its clients. During World War I he worked with Herbert Hoover on European food relief. He detested his first name because in Brooklyn schoolyards it immediately turned into "Horsecar". In addition, it was his father's name, and they didn't get along. So he often went by the initials "O. H."
