ALAN COATS REMEMBERS: STORIES OF DAD AND WALT Past Features
Happy New Year 2013!
The multi-image family greeting cards that Claude began creating in the mid-1950s were
anticipated by friends and relatives, and many saved them over the years.
But by Christmas Day, 1962, no Coats card had arrived.
People actually called asking why they didn't receive one.
By New Years Day 1963, however, the mailman had a surprise -- a Happy New Year card appeared.
As you can see, we really celebrated that year!
In honor of his centennial, we at ClaudeCoats.com
wish everyone a prosperous, healthy and Happy 2013.
