Scope and content:

The series includes files on over 90 outdoor advertising companies. Most of the files are fairly brief and consist of only a promotional pamphlet, a news clipping or a TAB plant audit; other files are more extensive. Major firms, such as Columbus Outdoor, Thomas Cusack Co., John Donnelly & Sons, Foster & Kleiser, General Outdoor, and United Advertising are more heavily represented. The series also gives an overview into the scale of the outdoor industry in the U.S. during the second half of the 20th century.

See also the Traffic Audit Bureau Series for other TAB materials.

Arranged alphabetically by company name. Letter size folders are followed by legal size folders in two runs, and by oversize folders.

[NOTE: Some large materials have been removed to the Oversize Materials Series. A Listing may be found at the end of this container list.]
