Mystery Photo

It’s a Mystery

This photograph shows Chair of the Fine Arts Department Lorser Feitelson and a group of students viewing a selection of paintings to be used in a traveling exhibit. We know that the student standing behind Feitelson is Greeley Wells FAPT ’69, but not much else. Do you recognize any of these sharply dressed students? If so, contact Art Center Archivist Robert Dirig at 626.396.2208 or robert.dirig@artcenter.edu. For more information about the Art Center College of Design Archives, including how you can donate or access materials, visit artcenter.edu/archives.

Mystery Solved

A big thank you to Doug Tubbs PROD ’41 for identifying Jack Roberts ADVT ’50 as the Art Center student sitting on the far right in the last mystery photo. Roberts went on to co-found the Carson-Roberts advertising agency (which later became Ogilvy & Mather), whose clients included Mattel, Max Factor and Baskin Robbins. They also created the “Have a Happy Day” smiley face, and led the ad campaign for moving the Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles. Thanks to Doug’s tip, we can now re-date this photograph to circa 1950.
