      The artist for the themed advertising page, The Dream House, is
      William Herwig, whose ad drawings sometimes carried the additional
      attribution, "Mellen Associates." The page was scheduled to run on
      Mondays in the Star-Bulletin.

      Madge Tennent is another artist whose work was sometimes used in ads
      and signed in a similar fashion.

      By the way, Blanding was in very good company at the S-B. Other
      staff artists in the 1920s were John Poole, John Kelly and Alex
      MacLeod. Their signed illustrations appear with great regularity in
      ads. Poole died in 1926 -- about age 38, as I recall; apparently he
      was a mentor for the other, younger artists, and no doubt Blanding
      knew him well. John Kelly's wife, Kate, was also a talented artist.
