Biography

Walter Diemer was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 8, 1905 [1][2][3].

While working as an accountant for Fleer, Walter experimented with recipes for gum bases, and came up with a recipe which was less sticky, and stretched more easily. This was the first practical bubble gum, and was used to make Dubble Bubble.

He married twice: (1) Adelaide (d. 1990) and (2) Florence Freeman Kohler (an artist; m. 1996).

Walter died from congestive heart failure on January 8, 1998 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. [4] [5]
