Jim Schaeffing Interviewed

Monday, March 04, 2013

The last few weeks have been pretty intense around here, featuring one massive interview after another. This week I'm taking a bit of a breather; featuring a small item each day. Today I'd like to let you know about an interview with Jim Schaeffing on another blog.

Schaeffing worked at the Charles E. Cooper studio in the 1950s and like so many other Cooper artists, his work is reminiscent of the type done by Coby Whitmore or Joe DeMers.

Recently I received a message from Rachel Davies, who has a blog called Old Soul Retro Times. Rachel wrote, "I was fortunate enough to have Jim share his story with me. Any help in spreading this around would be much appreciated."

    Pulled out some good Robert Peaks and Mortimer Wison,Jr., Wilson McLean and Fuchs plus an old Lu Kimmel.
    Cheers
