Inspirational Ads from United Technologies, circa 1980

While I was in grad school at Carnegie-Mellon from 1979-1981, United Technologies ran a series of full-page ads in the Wall Street Journal that never mentioned UT or its products, but instead provided words of wisdom and inspiration. The ads stuck with me, and I recently tried to find the ads on the web. I was unsuccessful in my search, so I contacted the company, and a representative was kind enough to send me a full set of the ads. I am going to use this blog to post the ads on a periodic basis; to see the ads, just click on the links below. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
