Melbourne Brindle was married for fifty years to Louise “Mimi” Ives Congdon, with whom he lived in San Francisco, CA., New Canaan, CT., and Block Island, R.I., along with their daughter. His second marriage was to Emily Bennis; in 1978 he moved to her hometown of Boston. They later lived in Camden, Maine, and finally in Vero Beach, Florida, where he died at the age of 90 after a series of strokes. He is buried in Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston.


He collected and restored antique cars, and in the late 1960s retired from advertising and devoted himself to painting; he spent several years researching and creating Twenty Silver Ghosts, a book of paintings of pre–World War I Rolls-Royces with text by Phil May. It was published in 1971 and reissued in 1979. His painting of King Edward VII’s 1902 Daimler hangs in Buckingham Palace, and his painting of the Wright brothers’ first flight is in the Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

During World War II he created posters for war bonds, including “Warhawks are Killers!” (1943) and “85 Million Americans Hold War Bonds” (1945). For the US Post Office, he designed a 1971 set of stamps on Historic Preservation, 1972 postal cards for the Tourism Year of the Americas, the 1975 “World Peace through Law” stamp, and a 1982 postal card depicting the Academy of Music in Philadelphia.
