  1. I have been searching for William Henry Summers work and so happy to find it. He is my Great Uncle on my mothers side. His sister Mae Summers Oldenburg is my Great Grandmother. If you have any additional prints I would love to see them. Thank you

    1. I am so glad I found and posted something that has a personal connection for you! I have looked though my collection and, unfortunately, I do not have any more of William’s work. I will certainly keep an extra eye out for it as this my favorite of the series of ads for which Philco commissioned many different artists during World War II.
