Walter Dorwin Teague Is Ready for His Close-Up

kodak beau brownie.jpgPrepare your viewing devices for a forthcoming documentary about Walter Dorwin Teague (1883-1960), the pioneering American industrial designer who shaped everything from early Kodak cameras and Texaco’s art deco gas stations to the Boeing Stratocruiser (we’ve posted below a vintage news report concerning the introduction of the “flying hotel”) and the 1939 World’s Fair. “Teague’s inspirational life is a daring story of the American dream,” says Jason Morris, an assistant professor of industrial design at Western Washington University in Bellingham. He is now at work on the hour-long feature, which will tell the story of Teague’s life, his rise to prominence, his mid-life transformation, and the stories behind some of his greatest designs. And there’s no shortage of industrial design intrigue! Adds Morris, “This story will be told chronologically through the decoding of a mysterious drawing that Teague did in 1926.”
