Elmer Doe

Founder and Partner, 1915-1956

Copy Chief at J. Walter Thompson in New York. Firm favorite of “The Commodore” himself. Tiring of the Manhattan rat race, he decides to tour the American South in search of greener pastures. Mere hours after stepping off the train in Louisville (his first stop), he is invited to dinner at the home of a local grandee, where he meets a young debutante. A lifelong romance is born. An agency follows shortly thereafter.
