Monte Pre-Mad Men Era

August 27, 2011

As noted earlier, Monte and Sharyl attempted to supplement their income in a variety of ways during the early years of their marriage and family.  Also, at different times as a young man, Monte was a draftsman for both International Harvester and Caterpillar and was quite adept at mechanical drawings.

At one point it appears Monte decided to attempt to provide his services to the state of Illinois in different ways.  Below are rough drafts of a proposal he considered to offer his services.  The rough drafts start out with pencil outlines and progress to more refined, but unfinished product.

One thing to keep in mind, during these past years, attractive printing methods were not as readily available in the home as today.  In much of Monte and Sharyl’s type written projects, misaligned type face from home typewriters is readily apparent.

It is not known what became of this project.  No finished product was found in Monte’s remaining property.
