"Nothing except the mint can make money without advertising."
-Thomas Babington Macaulay (British historian)
The years between World War I and World War II were difficult for Trinity School's publications. As the economy slipped into the Great Depression, fewer companies were able to afford advertising space, but two New York institutions, Brooks Brothers Clothing and Rogers Peet Company, continued to run their stylish fashion ads in the Trinity Times and the Yearbook. Many ads supporting the war effort also ran in the publications and inspired some students to leave school and join the fight against fascism.
