Biographical / Historical

Albert Gibbs Dunkelberg was born in 1922 and lived most of his life in the state of Iowa. He collected the Thompson’s Malted Milk Aviation Prints during his youth, probably during the time when he lived in Alton, Iowa, as a teen in the 1930s.

Dunkelberg served in the U.S. Navy during World War II from September 1941 until January 1946, working as an aviation machinist’s mate on aircraft carriers and on shore in the Atlantic, American, and Pacific Theaters. He was honorably discharged in 1946 as a Chief Aviation Mechanics Mate.

Following WWII, Dunkelberg graduated from Drake Law School in 1952 and practiced law in Osage, Iowa, for many years, retiring in 1994. He died in 2003 in Osage, Iowa.
