American bridge player, administrator, book writer, and sponsor, who was inducted by the ACBL Hall of Fame in 2000.
Solomon was an attorney, though he eventually left law to play bridge full-time. In 1948, he married Margery "Peggy" Golder (née Mastbaum). He was her bridge mentor. She became the third female ACBL Life Master and they were the subjects of a newspaper feature in 1960, "The Solomons: Top Married Bridge Team".
In world championship teams-of-four competition, Solomon was a member of the 6-man USA squad in the 1956 Bermuda Bowl. Not yet a tournament, it was a long head-to-head match between representatives of North America and Europe, won by France.
His books include No Trump Bidding (1947), Slam Bidding and Point Count (with Bennett L. Disbrow, 1951), How to Bid and What to Lead (with Disbrow, 1953), and Hold Our Bridge Hands (with Bert Wilson, 1969).
Charles Solomon died in Philadelphia on 1 May 1975, aged 69.
