    Jack Crosby, a nephew of The Crosby tribe, was the first art director to design scenery for the new (1963) black and white television daily daytime drama series. The initial set design for a room, looked like an open book, with a right side wing joining a flat center wall, the left wing wall extending the floor plan. Openings for doors and windows were located in various positions on each set. The set's painted color was neutral middle value beige-gray hues, with no wall-paper. Any hint at wall paper, or texture, was provided by a scenic roller paint pattern which was vogue in this era. The scenery height was eight (8'-0") foot high. Usually, network soap sets are ten feet high. All the sets were shallow in depth, minimum furniture and set decoration. Usually pictures were hung across wall expanses to establish an actors movement through the set. Competition from NBC TV and CBS TV daytime drama ratings forced the producers into expanding the physical production elements of the scenery and decoration. Neither NBC TV nor ABC TV used a set decorator. CBS TV was the only network employing and assigning a set decorator to their shows. Like a summer stock theater, scenery was designed, supervised, and decorated by the set designer/art director. Assistant Art Directors were employed after production became more involved, with time management determining additional support positions. In early television, like the theater, the designer was expected to cover everything in his design area.
