Vintage Television Commercials

Duke University has created a new digital collection of vintage television commercials. Adviews is a collection of “thousands of television commercials created or collected by the D’Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles (DMB&B) advertising agency, dated 1950s – 1980s. Major clients included are Procter & Gamble, Kraft, Schick, Vicks, and Post, among others.”  http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/adviews/

This new collection joins the popular  Ad*Access Collection at Duke University- an image database of over 7,000 U.S. and Canadian advertisements covering five product categories – Beauty and Hygiene, Radio, Television, Transportation, and World War II propaganda – dated between 1911 and 1955.
