He was born in Brooklyn, New York to the late Samuel and Rae (Solomon) Olshever on January 2, 1933.  Herb proudly served in the United States Air Force.  He earned his Bachelor's degree in Political Science from Brooklyn College and went on to earn a Master's degree in Management from Columbia University.
