Project Description

Dydia DeLyser & Paul Greenstein are co-authoring a book on the history of neon in the US. Their collaborative research has revealed that the widely mythologized Earle C. Anthony “Packard” sign in downtown Los Angeles was in fact not the first neon sign in the US. Dydia is a historical geographer at Cal State Fullerton and Board member of the MONA and the American Sign Museum; Paul has been designing, fabricating, installing, and restoring neon signs in Los Angeles for over forty years.
