There's a list of suggested sources (online and in print) in our guide for the America at Home (HP231) class; try it even if your research is for another class.
We have many books on ads covering different time periods and products; try these phrases when searching StyleCat, FIT Library's online catalog
- advertising pictorial works
- advertising [product name or category]
- advertising united states history
- advertising [decade]
Google Books also has many full text magazines where you can search for and find ads.Life Magazine is an especially good source since it covers 1936-1972 and the magazine's audience was average American households.
