Myra Janco Daniels (1925-2022), founder and CEO of the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Myra was also 1965 Advertising Woman of the Year and wife of Draper Daniels, the adman who created “The Marlboro Man” and the basis for “Don Draper” on AMC’s Madmen TV show. At the age of 25, Myra started her own advertising business in Terre Haute, Indiana which was later purchased by Draper Daniels. She was a longtime collaborator of Draper’s and together the couple achieved amazing success in the world of advertising in the mid-20th Century. In retirement, Myra founded the Naples Philharmonic Center and created a world class art museum which she led for over 20 years. Giving a slight nod to Charles Lindbergh, the Pulitzer Prize-Winning author A. Scott Berg once dubbed Myra “The Spirit of Naples.”.
