I hinted in a previous email that John Krygier went on an online  
database search at his university library and discovered a mess of ML  
ads from 1917 through 1933. He sent me the raw PDf files; I converted  
them into graphics, sorted them, and analyzed them a bit. The result  
is a four-page graphics-heavy article on the first 15 years of ML  
advertisements. See the first pass here:

There's a tremendous amount of great info in these ads for serious ML  

The graphics are quite dense and may take a long time to load on dial- 
up: Please let me know if it takes too long.

Feedback is welcome, as are additions.
