William Spiegel, VP of manufacturing firm

December 13, 1993

William Spiegel, retired vice president of the Baltimore firm of L. Gordon & Son who headed its Stylecraft Division, died Nov. 11 at a hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif.

He was 85 and had retired shortly before moving to Santa Barbara about 10 years ago.

The New York native came to Baltimore in the 1930s and started Korkcraft, which made cork desk accessories. After the business was sold to Gordon, a box manufacturer, and became Stylecraft, it added stationery, gifts and accessories.

Mr. Spiegel's wife, the former Anna Stiffman, died in 1965.

Arrangements for a memorial service are incomplete.

He is survived by a daughter, Judith S. Rogers of Amherst, N.H.; a son, Daniel Spiegel, United States Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland; two sisters, Rose Lavine and Beatrice Rosenberg, both of Laguna Hills, Calif.; and two grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to the Anna and William Spiegel Fund at Jewish Family Services in Baltimore.
