Benjamin Stanley Rosenthal (June 8, 1923 – January 4, 1983), was a Congressman from New York, serving from 1962 until his death from cancer in Washington, D.C. in 1983.

Born in New York City, Rosenthal attended public schools (including Stuyvesant High School), Long Island University, and City College. He served in the United States Army from 1943–46, and received his LL.B. from Brooklyn Law School (1949)[1] as well as an LL.M. from New York University, 1952. He was admitted to the New York bar in 1949 and commenced practice in New York City.

Rosenthal was elected as a Democrat to the Eighty-seventh United States Congress, filling the vacancy caused by the resignation of Representative Lester Holtzman. Taking office on February 20, 1962, he was re-elected that fall, and then again to ten succeeding Congresses.

On May 17, 1962, Rosenthal read a statement into the Congressional Record praising the magazine Mad on its tenth anniversary.[2] (Rosenthal's district, NY-8, included the part of Manhattan where Mad's offices were.) "Mad Magazine...for the last 10 years has humorously pointed out the laughable foibles of business, labor, advertising, television, sports and entertainment – to say nothing of politics," Rosenthal said.

Death and legacy

Rosenthal was re-elected again in 1982, but died of cancer in Washington, D.C. on January 4, 1983, just one day after the 98th United States Congress met for the first time.[3] On March 1, Gary Ackerman was elected to the seat and held it through 2013.

Rosenthal is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, New York.

The Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library at Queens College, City University of New York, is named in his honor.[4] Rosenthal's papers are held by the library's Department of Special Collections and Archives.[5][6]
