The Wonderful Life of Wilbur the Jeep by Wilbur Schram

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

You might have seen one or another of these images illustrated by Normal Rockwell, but did you know there’s a story as well?  Published in the January 29th, 1944, edition of the Saturday Evening Post, the story was written by Wilbur Schram, who went on to be called the “father of communication studies” in the United States. The story appears to be a fun, fictional tale of a jeep named Wilbur and his exploits.  Unfortunately, I could not find any copy of the full text anywhere on the net.

Here is the best snapshot I found on Flickr about the article.
