In 1964 Axel Springer was looking for a ‚Head’ who could creat a television magazine for him. Eduard Rhein was recommended. And Rhein became the ‘founder of HÖRZU’ and was, for nearly twenty years, its most successful editor. Under the pseudonym Hans-Ulrich Horster, he wrote 18 HÖRZU novels which were published in the millions. On the side, he developed, among other things, the padding method (‘Füllschrift’) for long playing record albums. The Eduard-Rhein Foundation, founded in 1976 and using his international royalties, annually rewards researchers in the electronics field. In the late ‘80s Rhein wrote his autobiography “The Century Men”. The man who invented HÖRZU and made Springer rich” died in Cannes, in April 1993 from a stroke.
