Whitney Darrow, Jr. for the United Way

Whitney Darrow, Jr. illustrates the face of childhood need in this 1967 appeal for the United Way. This appeared in Billboard but the campaign began in 1965 in various local newspapers. On the back cover, this issue of Billboard carries a short review of "Magical Mystery Tour" by the Beatles, but the scan by Google Books makes reading it a real challenge.

Note:  I'm a bit disappointed. Google Books went to all the effort and expense of scanning Billboard, and the resolution is inadequate for the small typeface. Google hosts this blog, and I hold them to the highest standards.

Readers may wish to reacquaint themselves with Attempted Bloggery's archive of advertising art and previous posts on Whitney Darrow, Jr. Remember: if it isn't here, it's somewhere else.
