Our History

As the founder of NEPA’s oldest advertising agency, The Lynn Organization, Inc., S. Chauncey B. Lynn recognized the power of advertising. “Advertising is one of the powerful sources of education. It can and often does speed progress.”

Lynn, a 1917 Penn State graduate began his career by joining The Robert St. Clair Advertising Company in 1927.  He soon partnered with Lindley Fieldhouse, a Temple University graduate, to form Lynn-Fieldhouse Advertising. The agency opened its doors in the former Brooks Building on South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre on July 1, 1932. 

The agency achieved early success representing prominent, local companies such as Wise Potato Chips and Planter’s Peanuts. The Smith and Clark Ice Cream Company, another major account, was the largest ice cream producer in Northeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New York. Lynn proudly recalled coining the term “Frozen Sunshine” (a vitamin D ice cream that was franchised nationally). 

Planters Nut and Chocolate, a subsidiary of Planters introduced by Lynn’s company, was featured nationally in Fortune Magazine. The agency also produced syndicated industrial TV ‘shorts’ for Eberhardt Faber Pencil Co., Quinlan Pretzels, and Wise Potato Chips. The Wise Potato Chip “owl” logo and branding concept is a notable brainchild of Lynn’s dream team.

A marketing pioneer, Lynn understood that growth was dependent on knowledge. “Advertising people have to know their client’s product and they have to know the competition,” he said. His astute ability to predict future trends prompted the addition of his second location on Madison Avenue in New York City. 

When Fieldhouse retired in 1955, Lynn’s son-in-law, Matt W. Fields joined the newly formed Lynn Organization, signing on a large list of clients that included First Federal Savings and Loan, Blue Cross of Northeastern PA, the Luzerne County Medical Society, Pocono Downs, and Home Box Office (HBO).  In 1976, Fields was appointed President of the company. Engrained with a strong work ethic, Fields ensured that his children got involved at an early age, spending summers learning the inner workings of the business from the ground up.

Located in the heart of downtown Wilkes-Barre, the company was ravaged by the Agnes Flood of 1972. In the quest to rebuild, the Lynn team (family and loyal employees) remained dedicated, tirelessly shoveling mud and hauling debris, salvaging anything of value. When the doors finally reopened the following year, it was with an enormous feeling of pride and a renewed sense of commitment.  

Ten years later Fields' son, Chris, and his daughter, Cathy, joined the firm. While Chris’s main focus was dedicated to the statistical data management of the HBO account, Cathy became Director of Public Relations where her responsibilities included copywriting and media placement. 

Continuing her grandfather’s legacy as a pioneer, Cathy soon identified a shift in marketing opportunities. Many large companies were creating in-house advertising departments and the trade show venue expanded, prompting the need for branded promotional merchandise. Seemingly a natural addition of services, Cathy partnered with her father to explore the possibilities and in 1985, they launched Fields Enterprises. 

While the promotional division became more prevalent, the need for retaining agency services dwindled. Lynn refused to retire. Notably clad in a three piece suit and signature bowtie, he drove himself to work daily, rarely missing his customary networking lunches at the Westmoreland Club until his passing in 1994. He was 97. 

To date, Fields Enterprises has enjoyed a large local and international clientele including Bertelsmann Printing and Vanity Fair, and continues to thrive as a full service promotional marketing firm. Fields, 89, considers himself semi-retired, while the third generation carries on the family legacy — a rich tradition built on a reputation of hard work, quality product, and professional customer service.
