*NG's DQ ads year 1962*
Morning, Steamboating colleagues:
Thanks, Jim, for the update on ads in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Magazine, March, 1962. KEERECK! you are as this ad larger with more information, 1/4th Pg. in B/W. Ad print space, graphic, text expensive then as now in leading publications. The NATGEO DVDs of past issues great for resource/research--but you'll pay for it. Again, I'm kicking the can over having to discard, give away all those shelves of NATGEO issues at home before moving, but enough was enough. I selectively saved a few classic or anniversary issues.

Remember some of those World War II railroad ads in NATGEO, and other magazines, showing well-heeled business men smoking cigars and then the text, "Be considerate. Give your Pulman bunk to a deserving solider or sailor heading to war." Or, "The rails move the weapons of war!" Cheers!
