Selling Schlage

In 1961 & 1962, Schlage had an ad campaign using architects to design entries to homes. It’s a great way to sell a doorknob. Don’t know the history of this, but some of the architects (Anshen & Allen, Campbell & Wong and Rockrise) are still known of today. The others, Cohen, Pettersen and Wright (that’s Ernest), not so much unfortunately.
