Donald Hall Net Worth: Donald Hall is an American businessman who has a net worth of $1.1 billion. Donald Hall became a billionaire thanks to the family business, Hallmark Cards, the largest manufacturer of greeting cards in the USA today. It was formed by his father Joyce C. Hall (d. 1982) in 1910, and some half century later, in 1966, Donald took over the business. With Donald at the helm, Hallmark Card expanded into Crayons (Crayola), real estate (Crown Center shopping complex) and media (Crown Media Holdings, parent of Hallmark Donald Channel). Today, Hall serves solely as Chairman leaving the everyday management to his two sons. Most notably, his elder son Donald Hall Jr. is President and CEO of Hallmark, whereas his younger son David is President of Hallmark's North American business. According to estimates, the Crayola brand generates 3 billion crayons every year, including 1 billion made using solar power. Apart from performing their duties at Hallmark, Donald's son have continued the family tradition of supporting various Kansas City-area organizations focused on arts and education through the Hall Family Foundations.
Donald Hall (born September 20, 1928) is an American poet, writer, editor and literary critic. A graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy, Harvard and Oxford, Hall is the author of over 50 books across several genres from children's literature, biography, memoir, essays, and including 22 volumes of verse. Regarded as a "plainspoken, rural poet," Hall's work "explores the longing for a more bucolic past and reflects the poet???s abiding reverence for nature." Early in his career, he became the first poetry editor of The Paris Review (1953-1961), a prominent quarterly literary journal, and was noted for interviewing poets and other authors on their craft. Hall is respected for his work as an academic, having taught at Stanford University, Bennington College and the University of Michigan, who has made significant contributions to the study and craft of writing.
On 14 June 2006, Hall was appointed as the Library of Congress's 14th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry (commonly known as "Poet Laureate of the United States"). Hall served as poet laureate for one year.

Hall was born in Hamden, Connecticut, the only child of Donald Andrew Hall, a businessman, and Lucy Wells. He was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy, then earned a bachelor's degree from Harvard in 1951 and a B.Litt, from Oxford in 1953. Hall received an honorary PhD, Lit. from Bates College in 1991.
Hall began writing even before reaching his teens, beginning with poems and short stories, and then moving on to novels and dramatic verse. Hall continued to write throughout his prep school years at Exeter, and, while still only sixteen years old, attended the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, where he made his first acquaintance with the poet Robert Frost. That same year, he published his first work. While an undergraduate at Harvard, Hall served on the editorial board of The Harvard Advocate, and got to know a number of people who, like him, were poised with significant ambitions in the literary wor
