Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

In 1967, when this National Radio Institute (NRI) advertisement appeared in Radio-Electronics magazine, allowing tattoos to be visible on people representing a company's interest was almost never done. Harley Davidson might have allowed it, or maybe Old Spice after shave lotion, but certainly not typical from an educational establishment pitching electronics instruction. The dude in this ad has a clearly, intentionally visible "tat" on his right arm. It is no accident because the shirt sleeves are rolled up when they don't need to be, and the right sleeve is up twice as far as the left sleeve. The photographers wanted readers to see it. My interpretation of it is "D. S.," and then some illegible character at the end (maybe "jr"?). Any guesses as to what it might be?
