C. H. Long in Life Magazine

C. H. Long in Life Magazine

On August 22, 1949, LIFE magazine ran a cover photo of C.H. Long who was a thirty-nine year old foreman of the JA Ranch in Paducah, Texas. The magazine described the cowboy as “one of the most purely functional human beings the world has ever developed.” In 1954, advertising executive, Leo Burnett, saw this photo & came up with the idea of the "Marlboro Man" cigarette campaign for Philip Morris & Company. The promotion is said to be one of the most brilliant advertising campaigns of all time.
