The Gossage Gallery

Welcome to the works and words of Howard Luck Gossage,
"the Socrates of San Francisco." Based in a converted Firehouse at 415 Pacific, Gossage's unique understanding of media and prescient criticism of his own industry – advertising – generated both great success and great controversy.

"People read what interests them, sometimes it's an ad."
Here's some background on one of Howard's famous quotes (These are MP3 files).
