When I was 17, I had a summer job working as the assistant in the advertising department of the original Abercrombie & Fitch store on Madison Avenue in New York. (No, not the Abercrombie people know today. Abercrombie & Fitch was the world's finest store for all sorts of sporting, hunting & fishing equipment. It's where Teddy Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway and John F. Kennedy shopped.) Every day A&F ran an ad on the same page of the New York Times, and my job was to get all the materials for that ad, have the art studio create the layout, and then take the "mechanical" of the ad to the NYT building on West 43rd St. on my way to Penn Station to go home to NJ. The next morning on the train back into NYC, I would see the ad (my ad) printed in the paper. That started my love of advertising.
