My stepdad’s father ran an advertising agency in Pittsburgh some time in the 60s, and because he died before I was born, I never had the chance to meet him. I’d really like to be able to find some of the stuff his agency worked on, or even just information about it - I think it would make a nice father’s day gift for my stepdad, and since I work in advertising myself, I feel like it would bring us closer. I’ve tried googling, but not had any success. Does anyone have tips on doing this kind of research, especially long distance? I live in Illinois, so I can’t really head down to the library and look stuff up. Do you think it would be helpful to try calling a local library?
Thanks so much for any advice!
