    Exactly.
    That was a totally different era.
    Mitchell would never survive in today's PC Corporate world. Not even close.
    He didn't allow women to work in the Exterior Studios. :eek:
    A different era.

    well there were the 'Damsels of Design'. However, just maybe he didn't want any 'distractions' when important work like exterior design was being done!

    The Damsels were there when Harley Earl was VP. And they were working on Interiors for the most part. There was a female exterior when Mitchell was VP, then he decreed that no more women in the Exterior Studios. It’s a bit longer story, but that’s enough for our purposes.

    Not very likely, although some of my superiors had been known every now and than to label some of my work as ‘cartoonish!’
    But I shook it off and kept going ;)

    Wonder why one of the artists is wearing a coat and a tie? Everybody else is wearing casual.

    "Boss" is likely a disciple of Bill 'Close Horse' Mitchell.
