Hugh Hefner Pens Farewell Column to Chicago
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has officially said goodbye to the city where his empire was born. The iconic publisher wrote a farewell column in the Chicago Tribune this past weekend as the company's operations head to Los Angeles.
Brief, but poignant, Hefner chronicled the history of Playboy and thanked Chicago for helping shape the magazine. Hefner talked about how in 1952, his tough self-introspection led to a tearful decision to make a change, ultimately leading to the founding of Playboy magazine.
