Henry Schachte, 1966

“I’m writing a chronicle of one branch of my family history, which includes my great grandfather, Henry Schachte. My internet searches brought me to Mr. Karsh’s website, and the listing for my great grandfather’s sitting (#12628, April 4, 1966).”

Thank you to Henry Schachte’s great granddaughter for sharing this portrait with us. Mr. Schachte joined the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in 1963, and was its president in 1972 and 1973.
