Mr. Chubs must think he deserves some credit as well.

Tackett / Thursday

Amy Auscherman, design preserver / archivist at Herman Miller had a way better Tackett Thursday than I did. This is a La Gardo Tackett memo to Hugh De Pree, son of Herman Miller founder, D.J. De Pree. This is when Tackett was working for the company's Objects Division. 
Amy's Instagram feed is great. Follow her at acid_free
