TAD, founded by T.A.Davis in the 1930s, always produced high quality rackets which were often showcases for the natural beauty of the fine woods used. Davis had three patents, the most famous of which was for the 'cross-grain lamination' which was used on every TAD racket I have seen. I have little reference material for TAD.
One of the first TAD rackets with fiberglass (Clasiden) around the head for reinforcement (later the Classic I). CLASSIC II, c. 1970s Another step in the nice fiberglass composite TAD rackets (leather grip just missing). CLASSIC III, c. 1970s The last of the TAD Classic models, full fiberglass all the way around head and down the shaft.
Davis sort of went the way of the Tretorn shoes...they just didn't change with the times and try to keep up with the new players who made the tennis boom BOOM. My experience with Davis started around 1970 so I can't speak to those models from the 1960 catalog. Would be neat to see one, though.
