Goddard Lieberson (1911-1977) was president of Columbia Records, and composer by training. In the 1940s, he introduced to the American public the long-playing records of classical repertoire and Broadway productions. His greatest legacy was original recordings of Broadway musicals and other productions, as well as studio cast recordings of major Broadway hits.

In 1946 he married ballet dancer and actress Vera Zorina; the marriage produced two sons, composer Peter Lieberson (1946-2011) and philosopher, writer and journalist Jonathan Lieberson (1949-1989).
