The Beatles -- International Committee To Reunite the Beatles [Other Ephemera]
8 ½” x 11”. The mastermind behind the ICTRTB was serial inventor Alan Amron, an American inventor who holds 40 USA patents. He was also involved in a popular dispute of $400 million with 3M for the invention of the Post-It Note.
In 1976 Amron created the International Committee to Reunite The Beatles, placing placing radio and newspaper advertisements asking everyone to donate a dollar, which would then be given to the Beatles to reunite for a concert. Also known as "Let It Be", Amron's committee was one of several attempts to reunite the band in the mid and late 1970s, but it had the distinction of being a people-based campaign. He also incented Muhammad Ali to join the initiative; Ali hoped that the four former Beatles would agree to donate the money to children in need around the world. As the ad notes, the $1 deposited into the common kitty not only supported the cause at minimum payout, but it also earned contributors an iron-on bearing the organization’s logo. The campaign, of course, was not successful. NEAR MINT.
