Alvin Bennett
Alvin S. Bennett (September 21, 1926 – March 15, 1989) was a record company executive who worked at Dot Records before becoming the President of Liberty Records from 1958 to 1968. During his time at the record company, he became credited with transforming Liberty from a small, debting starter company into a well-known success.[1]

One of the major acts who recorded on Liberty Records was Alvin and the Chipmunks, actually Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., who recorded as David Seville. Seville named The Chipmunks (Alvin, Simon, and Theodore) after Liberty Records executives Alvin Bennett, Simon Waronker, and Theodore Keep, respectively.[2]
