A promotional mailer from the Elk's Rendezvous Nite Club. The mailer is a single sheet of paper which folds in half to form the mailer. The first page features a reproduced letter to Ralph Cooper, Elk's Rendezvous Nite Club, to Mr. Richard Campbell, U.S.O., thanking the U.S.O. for allowing their orchestra to perform. The text is printed in red on a white background. The letter is surrounded by a white and red border featuring illustrations of a tank, soldiers, a crowd of men and women, and a banner. It also has the phrase [We Mean it!] printed in white along the top right edge of the border. The interior pages fold out to form a full-page red and white spread. It features a collage of photographic images with [ELK'S RENDEZVOUS / FLOOR /SHOW] printed at the top and information about the club and the performers, printed at the bottom. Ralph Cooper is depicted in the top left corner and Sam Theard in the bottom right corner. The top half of the back of the mailer includes blank space for an address and stamp surrounded by illustrations of music notes and female dancers in front of a building with [Elk's Rendezvous] printed on a sign above the dancers. The bottom half features red and white text against an illustrated background decorated with a star spangled curtain, music notes, and female dancers.
A silver gelatin print depicting a black-and-white photomontage of two (2) images of Sam Theard. Theard, depicted on the left, is seated with his knees drawn up and his elbows resting on his knees. He is looking up towards the image of Theard on the right. In the image of Theard on the right, he is standing with his arms out, bent at the elbows, with his proper right thumb and middle finger held together as if snapping. Theard is wearing the same outfit in both images: plaid pants held up by diagonally striped suspenders, a white short-sleeve collared shirt, and a white cap with a turned up brim. The photographer's mark, handwritten in green, and located in the center of the bottom edge reads, [Stiger / K.C. Mo.]. In the top left corner of the image is a handwritten inscription in black ink that reads, [From original Lovin Sam Theard. / To a Very Sweet Kid / Laura Cathrell / 12/8/35 / CATCH ON?]. There are no inscriptions on the back of the photograph.
