David Dole Memorial Fund

David W. Dole

David W. Dole

In 1969 David Dole was one of the people responsible for the creation of the Industry Standard Coding Identification (ISCI), the precursor to Ad-ID.  He passed away last week at the age of 101. I had been in regular contact with him over the years, and he was a vital, active, and brilliant man right up to the end.  MediaPost will be running an tribute to David February 5th and 6th.

There are a variety of charities that David wanted funds donated to upon his passing but he specified that he would like a way to be memorialize in a way that had a larger impact on the Advertising community. 

Keeping with David’s wishes, all donations will benefit the 4A’s High School Initiatives, including The High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media (IAM) and Manhattan Early College School for Advertising (MECA). 

"David was an early innovator in is work in Advertising, and this institution seems to fit his profile." - Kevin Dole
