President and Editor, Jacob Seibert:
At first I was amused by this power, then dazzled by it and fascinated with the minutiae of how it worked. Later, I tried to use mass media for what seemed worthwhile purposes, only to find it resistant and limited. I came to the conclusion that like other modern technologies which now surround our lives, advertising, television, and most mass media predetermine their own ultimate use and effect.
In the end, I became horrified by them, as I observed the aberrations which they inevitably create in the world. They felt that while advertising was already a lucrative field by the time I was seeking a way into it in the late s, it was still very chancy for Jewish boys.
They were certainly right about that. Security was their primary value: Both of them had escaped pogroms in Eastern Europe. Hard work at anything to keep life together.
Struggling out of poverty. Curiously, success came to him during the Depression. He founded what later became Harry Mander and Company, a small service business to the garment industry, manufacturing pipings, waist bands, pocketing, and collar canvas.
He was beyond draft age and so was free to do a successful trade in servicing the manufacture of military uniforms. After the war, the business grew in new directions as the economy spurted forward into an era of rapid growth.
I had planned something much flashier for myself, something with greater glamour. It was snobbery, I suppose. Since so many of the images were from the ads of the period, the world of advertising seemed appropriate. There was something about that life-style, those big cars, the great white yachts, the polished people on them and the life of leisure and pleasure: More, I wanted to help create those images, to be around models, artists, photographers and writers whom I imagined to be the sleek and sophisticated people.
Despite some early setbacks, such as that Park Avenue experience, by much of my dream was realized. By then I had already concluded a successful career as head of a theatrical publicity agency and joined a celebrated San Francisco ad agency, which became Freeman, Mander and Gossage.
We concentrated on so-called class clients. Triumph, Land Rover and Rover cars. Ours was the most elegant office in town. At some point, not very long into this new career, I began to realize a kind of hollowness in myself.
I caught myself smiling pasty smiles. I noticed that despite all this I was not having a good time. I think I hit an emotional bottom in while cruising through the Dalmatian Straits, observing rocky cliffs, rolling seas, dazzling sky, and colors as bright as a desert.
Leaning on the deck rail, it struck me that there was a film between me and all of that. I knew they were spectacular.
But the experience stopped at my eyes. Something had gone wrong with me. I remembered childhood moments when the mere sight of the sky or grass or trees would send waves of physical pleasure through me.
Yet now on this deck, I felt dead. It was that nature had become irrelevant to me, absent from my life. Life moved too fast for that now.The administrative regulation implementing this section of the act further explains that, at this stage, “[m]edical examinations conducted in accordance with this section do not have to be job-related and consistent with business necessity.” (29 C.F.R.
