Scope and Contents

The collection consists of approximately fifty advertisements pertaining to Dallas-based companies involved in the defense industry. The ads are from as early as 1953, when Mitchell worked for Tracy-Locke Advertising, and as current as the early 1990s, when he moved from Dallas. The materials are a good representation of how technology-based Dallas companies were reaching out to their consumers and the public in the 1950s through 1980s.
