Beautifully engraved RARE certificate from the Lennen & Newell, Inc issued in 1952. This historic document was printed by Hassbrouck Thistle & Co and has an ornate border around it with the company's name on top center. This item is hand signed by the Company's President and Co-Founder (H. W. Newell ) and Secretary, J.J. Speirs and is over 70 years old. Lennen & Newell, Inc. was a famous large advertising agency that went out of business in the early 1972. The company was founded by H. W. Newell , Phillip W. Lenned and Adolph J. Toijo.

The agency was a pioneer first in radio advertising and then in television. Its Hall of Fame show for client Lehn & Fink brought actors John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, and Clark Gable and musician Jascha Heifetz to radio for the first time. In 1948 the agency published a report about television that told clients to “Get in or get left” but also warned that the payoff could be years away.
