Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 13, 2009

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we thought we would share Valentine’s Day cards located in the library’s Ephemera Collection (DRT 2). These Valentines are from Ruth Seele Aniol, the wife of Claude B. Aniol. Mrs. Aniol, a San Antonio native, was a collaborator for her husband’s advertising agency’s publications. She passed away in 1988 in Dallas.   Claude and Ruth Aniol donated  a large amount of material to the DRT Library, including subject files, photographs, books, periodicals, newspapers, clippings, artifacts, and other printed items.
