Just ran across this post, and thought I'd add something to the discussion of the illustrator for the "borrowed" image. That was Don Clever, a San Francisco based artist.
I tried to find out more info about Don Clever a while ago, with little success, but made a little webpage here. However, it's noteworthy that Mr. Clever was also the illustrator for this VERY beloved menu cover for the Lanai in San Mateo!
Sorry if this runs a bit offtopic, but it seems related since the HV cover directly reused the American President Lines art.
