Take a letter…

From Letterheady, a collection of interesting and amusing letterheads…

For others– including examples from such celebs as Elvis, Adolph Hitler, The Rolling Stones, and Kurt Vonnegut (before he was “Kurt Vonnegut”)– visit Letterheady.

As compose ourselves, we might recall that on this date in 1967, the first educational television network in the U.S.– National Educational Television (NET)– signed on as a network, when 70 independent educational stations interconnected for the first time to broadcast Lyndon Johnson’s inaugural address. (Prior to this, NET had simply circulated tapes of shows to stations, which broadcast them when they arrived– “consult your local listings.”)  Lest we doubt that the pace of advance is brisk, it was on this same date only four years later (1971) that public television’s signature prime time show, Masterpiece Theater, premiered on what by then was PBS (the successor to NET).
