This is a really cool find!  A "Thank You" letter for Mark and Nani's gift of the TeleMatic to the VP of Kellogg's.  What is a TeleMatic?  It is a phonenumber mechanical index for a fancy desktop.  I'll post a photo of it as soon as I can find one in the collection.

Did you notice the date of the letter?  December 28th.  That means that the boss and staff were working between Christmas and New Years.  No vacation.  That was a different era of executives back in the 60's.

I just found another letter that has Mr. Olmstead's first name, "Ralph".  Slowly, step by step we will put this giant puzzle back together.  Ralph P. Olmstead, VP of The Kellogg Company, 1960.  (Notice that they do not use the 's​ in the corporate name on the letterhead.  In the series the graphics and voiceover anouncer say, "Kellogg's" with the 's.)​​​

Be sure to read the other letter from the Kellogg's Assistant to the Advertising Manager, A.J. Finley.  It's also from the same date, but has some interesting content.  Personally, I like the last thing it says... but I'll let you discover it yourself.

Also, please do not republish, link to, or share this particular content outside of our Allakazam Archive community and site.  Let's respect the authors and their families in the same way we would appreciate being respected ourselves.  And in light of that, we will remove your own personal letter if you so request.  These postings and comments are monitored and we will do our best to maintain a fun, family friendly site for all to enjoy!

Best Allaka-Magical Wishes,
