Saul Mauriber (May 21, 1915 – February 12, 2003) was the last collaborator and partner of Carl Van Vechten.

During World War II, Carl Van Vechten volunteered at the Stage Door Canteen. Top-notch entertainers frequently performed there for servicemen. Saul Mauriber, one of the busboys under Van Vechten's supervision, began working as his photographic assistant and remained in this capacity for twenty years. Mauriber was also responsible for organizing Van Vechten's photographs and eventually became the photographic executor for Van Vechten's estate.

The Library of Congress acquired its Van Vechten collection of approximately 1,400 photographs in 1966 from Saul Mauriber.[1]
