Re: Anyone have any idea how I might locate an old Morgan ad from 82 or 83?
Chris n Cate,
Wow. That's a tall order! Have you talked with the librarians in your local library? I'd talk to a senior librarian in your local library. They are there to help you find stuff, after all. Further, libraries have a means of borrowing from and exchanging with each other and will help each other find information. It's normally for articles, but why couldn't it be for ads?
I have a hazy memory of using an index of journals and periodicals mumbledy years ago when I was back in grad school. It should tell you what was being published in the time period. If the librarians are not willing to search page by page for you, how about starting by fetching the index of advertisers from 10 years worth of a given journal, maybe?
On the other hand, maybe you could just write the editors of Sailing Magazine.
