There’s a 1/2 hour Lou Dorfsman audio interview flnatiog around online somewhere. It was from when the “Dorfsman and CBS” book came out. It’s great to hear him speak about all his work- with a little nostalia, since at that point the identity he designed was starting to be dismantled- the wall, the reports, Didot, microphones… and his New York accent is awesome. Also- I wanted to tell you that the 1964-67 D&AD annuals are on ebay right now from British seller souvenir-century. Definitely worth getting-if you don’t have them already.
