An informal history of advertising lecture by David Wojdyla

This iPhoto slideshow was created using key slides from a lecture delivered by the luckiest man in advertising to students at DePaul University College of Communication on 12.02.13.

BACK STORY: Wojdyla, a native Chicagoan, began his career on Madison Avenue. After 15 years in New York, he got homesick. Today, after almost 15 years of owning an ad agency in Chicago, he has a pretty strong opinion about which city is better.

That may be one reason why he was invited to be part of an intense two-week December session at DePaul University College of Communication titled, “The New York Way: In-Person Agency and Media Visits and Analysis.”

This integrated marketing (andvertising) course came about when three forward-looking professors (Ron Culp, Ken Krimstein, Cristina Benitez) all with a different area of expertise (Public Relations, Advertising, Latino Media and Communication) decided to take students into New York City to gain a deeper understanding of the structure, operations and culture of agencies and media in Chicago and New York.

Do you recognize anyone in this picture?

mentor-ron-and-a-few-menteesThat is, besides the guy front and center, Ron Anderson!

Ron, a.k.a. the godfather of Minneapolis advertising, was the mentor who had the greatest impact on my career. (And my spiritual life.)

I recently re-discovered this photo in my basement. Unfortunately, there’s no caption. So if you’re in this pic — or know someone who is — please help!

Actually, it was a nerve-racking declaration

July 4, 1776—The text is unanimously agreed to by the Continental Congress

When Ben Franklin said “Indeed we must all hang together or most assuredly we shall all hang separately,” he wasn’t being flip. 

Every man who signed the Declaration understood he might also be signing his own ticket to the gallows. (Yet not one representative of the Thirteen Colonies refused to do so.)
