immigrant, Czech parents, Andy finished high school and went on to the Carnegie Institute
of Technology in Pittsburgh, graduating in 1949 with hopes of becoming an art teacher in
the public schools. While in Pittsburgh, he worked for a department store arranging window
displays, and often was asked to simply look for ideas in fashion magazines . While
recognizing the job as a waste of time, he recalls later that the fashion magazines "gave
