Wally’s Creed, Part I

Airstream’s foundation can be found within the wheel ruts along the Oregon Trail. Wally Byam’s paternal grandparents came from Iowa, while the Biswells, his maternal grandparents, arrived from Missouri. Both families left their homes to find new lives in eastern Oregon. They endured hardships as they headed West and even still after settling in Baker City. Wally was born in 1896, on the fourth of July.

The area that had been home to ancient civilizations that flourished, rich cultural traditions with wide-rippling historical impacts, centuries of nations at war, and religions that spread all over the world. Wally Byam had brought the Caravan back into ancient times, when Egyptians, Assyrians, and Romans ruled the world. When the Caravan reached the northern region of Asia Minor, we were ready to


Airstream: an Advertising Legend

How did Airstream become an American icon? Let’s trace its roots in advertising and the way it created a visual experience of the road from its origins to today. In 1919, an up-and-coming advertising man named Wallace M. Davis, the advertising manager for The Daily Palo Alto, wrote a letter to Society Brand Clothes. An excerpt from that letter, soliciting a sale of advertising space, read: “The average Stanford Man wants his clothes stylish…we believe Society Brand Clothing to be well worth the expenditure; no other national clothiers are advertising on the campus.” After graduation, Davis changed his name back
