Harold Schafer (1912-2001) is best known as the man who restored Medora, ND, the gateway village for Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but Medora was just the capstone of a brilliant career in business and philanthropy. Born in a tar paper shack near Stanton, ND, Harold Schafer began his life as a traveling salesman, and went on to create the Gold Seal Company, and to market signature products; Glass Wax, Snowy Bleach, and Mr. Bubble, throughout the United States and beyond. Although he hobnobbed with Liberace, Perry Como, Jo Stafford, Arthur Godfrey, and Ronald Reagan, Harold devoted his life to helping others. By the time of his death in 2001, he had given away his immense fortune, and made Medora North Dakota's number one tourist destination.
