OBITUARIES

Julian Grace, Advertising Executive
Who Pioneered in Detroit Field, Dies

Julian A. Grace, veteran Detroit
advertising executive and senior
partner and treasurer of W. B.
Doner & Co., Detroit-Baltimore
agency, died Tuesday at age 57.
Mr. Grace was a pioneer in De-
troit agency use of TV as a mass
selling medium-
but took greater
pride in his in-
tuition for recog- ,
nizing cre ative
talent, especially
among aspiring
writers. He de-
voted a vast
reservoir of pa-
tience and under- Mr. Grace
standing to helping such talent,
such as the then-unknown Stan
Freberg. Wit and a sense of humor
were trademarks of Mr. Grace's
own approach to effective com-
munications.
Most of the Doner firm's present
account supervisory people and
many of its writers at one time or
another were proteges of Mr.
Grace.
Born in Worcester, Mass., Mr.
Grace was brought to Detroit when
nine months old. He was educated
in Detroit public schools and City
College, now Wayne State Univer-
sity.
Mr. Grace, a self-motivated
product of the Depression era,
wavered between advertising and
a stage career. He finally de-
cided on advertising as a pro-
fession and entertainment as a
hobby.
The decision took him into ad-
vertising in 1934 with a small De-
troit agency where he volunteered
to work without pay to have an op-
portunity to learn the business. But
demonstrating a practical side, he
simultaneously operated two feed
stores, each of which netted him
an income of $3 per week.
Mr. Grace's first client break-
through came in 1935 when he con-
vinced Faygo Beverage Co. it
should advertise its variety of soft
drink flavors. Faygo gave him a
$2,000-a-year budget and an ad-
monition to spend it carefully. He
did, and the results became the
foundation for one of the advert-
ising industry's most enduring
client-agency relationships. Faygo
now invests nearly $1,000,000 an-
nually in avertising under the
Doner agency's direction.
Mr. Grace worked as a one-man
agency until 1937 when he joined
the forerunner firm of what even-
tually became W. B. Doner & Co.
In 1946, he was named to a part-
nership and since remained one of
the organization's principal stock-
holders. He long had agency man-
agement responsibility for ac-
counts like Borman Foods Co. and
Hygrade Food Products Co.
Mr. Grace was a member of
the Adcraft Club of Detroit,
Standard City Club and Knoll-
wood Country Club.
Always active in civic and fund-
raising activities, he held various
chairmanships in Allied Jewish
Campaign projects, worked on be-
half of Columbian Charities, Inc.,

Israel Holds Services
for Holocaust Victims

JERUSALEM (JTA)- Memorial
services were held last week in
synagogues throughout Israel for
victims of the Nazi Holocaust
whose day of death is unknown.
The Israeli rabbinate had fixed
Jan. 11, the 10th of Tevet, as a
general Kaddish day for such vic-
tims of Nazism.
At the Yad Vashem, the Institute
for the Remembrance of the Holo-
caust, ashes taken in 1947 from the
Treblinka death camp in Poland
were brought for burial. They were
turned over to the Yad Vashem by
Prof. Jacob Shenkman, who was a
member of a Jewish vengeance
squad in postwar Europe that
hunted down Nazi war criminals.
The rites were attended by sur-
vivors of the Holocaust and by pub-
lic figures, including Development
Minister Moshe Kol. An eternal
light was kindled in the Memorial
Hall, where the ashes were de-
posited. The number of Jews mur-
dered by the Nazis at Treblinka
is believed to have been about
800,000.
