Griffin, the creator and producer of such game show as Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, started his career as a singer and later served often as a substitute host on the Tonight Show before Johnny Carson took over. He also had his own daytime talk show for many years.
"Merv Griffin is a unique force in the world of entertainment and media, combining his talents as a singer, performer and television personality with his skill as a business leader and entrepreneur. He's truly a living legend," stated museum president Stuart N. Brotman.
