American Advertising Federation Hall of Fame

American Advertising Federation Hall of Fame

The Advertising Hall of Fame is a list of notable advertising leaders in America as chosen by the American Advertising Federation.

It was founded in 1948 as a result of a proposal by the New York Ad Club and its president, Andrew Haire, to the Advertising Federation of America, the predecessor organization to the American Advertising Federation.

It honors advertising leaders - from their significant contributions to the advertising industry to their personal commitment to society.
