The Story of the Ad Council

The idea for the Ad Council was born in November 1941. Days later, with the entry of the U.S. into World War II,
we were christened The War Advertising Council and soon created a campaign to sell War Bonds.

More than seventy years and hundreds of campaigns later, the Ad Council remains America's leading producer
of public service communications.
