The Father of Vicks

Record #:
In 1905, Lunsford Richardson, a Greensboro druggist, went into business to sell his own medicines. One of his connections, Vicks VapoRub, has been known around the world for over one hundred years. How the name came to be is a mystery, although there are theories. What is known, Tomlin writes is that \"he created a medicinal marvel for the ages, the like of which may never be equaled.\"
