Size 100.0 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 34,000 items)
Abstract Lunsford Richardson (1854-1919) began marketing various remedies in Greensboro, N.C. in 1898. The operation became Vick Chemical Company in 1911 and made increasing profits with its Vicks VapoRub cold remedy. The Company was managed over the following decades by Richardson's sons H. Smith (1885-1972) and Lunsford, Jr. (1891-1953). After various mergers and acquisitions, it became Richardson-Vick, Inc., in 1980. In 1985 the Richardson family sold the company to Procter & Gamble Co. The collection includes files kept by H. Smith Richardson, Sr., while he was president of Vick Chemical Company, 1919-1929; files pertaining to the operation of the company, chiefly generated by the General Manager's Department; files from the Advertising and Sales Department, including campaign books; financial and legal papers; personnel materials; files from the Production Department; "historical material"; clippings; files of H. Smith Richardson, Jr., concerning hostile takeover bids; Richardson family papers; product samples; photographs; and audio-visual materials. Although the papers include material from the early years of the company through its sale to Procter & Gamble Company in 1985, the bulk of material dates from the years 1919-1929. Coverage of the years before 1919 is scant, consisting of a few mementoes and some correspondence. Coverage of the years 1929-1985 is very uneven. A notable exception is material from the Advertising and Sales Department, which is nearly complete from 1920 to 1960.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

In 1890, Lunsford Richardson (1854 1919), realizing that his prospects were limited in the town of Selma, N.C., sold his successful but small drugstore, and moved with his wife and children to the larger town of Greensboro, N.C. There he hoped to find bigger markets and more opportunities.

Richardson and a partner, John Fariss, bought the Porter and Tate Drugstore on Elm Street in Greensboro, renaming it the Richardson and Fariss Drugstore. There, Richardson began to sell the home remedies that he had developed over the years. In 1894, he introduced a product that was destined to make him a fortune, Vicks Magic Salve, a cure for croup.

The origin of the name Vicks has been clouded by time. However, according to company lore, Lunsford Richardson thought his own name was too long and cumbersome to attach to a product. He decided to use the shorter Vicks, in honor of his brother in law Joshua Vick, a doctor in Selma.

In 1898, Richardson's interest in making remedies prompted him to sell his share in the thriving drugstore to his partner and start a new company, Lunsford Richardson Wholesale Drug Company. Among other cures, he continued to make Vicks Magic Salve under a new name, Vicks Croup and Pneumonia Salve.

Richardson quickly tired of fighting with the other stockholders in the company about what to do with the profits. While he wanted to put any profits back into the business to finance more advertising, they wanted them as dividends. As a result, Richardson sold his share of the business in 1905.

Richardson took his savings and opened a new business, Vick Family Remedies Company, this time owned solely by him. He made twenty one different remedies under the Vicks name, and marketed them in twenty surrounding counties.

Despite his hard work, Lunsford Richardson's new business did not make a profit, and he began to run out of savings. In 1907, he asked his oldest son Henry Smith Richardson (1885 1972) to be advertising and sales manager for the fledgling company in hopes that his son could rescue it.

Smith Richardson, as he was called, attended Davidson College for a time before transferring to the Naval Academy. He was dismissed from the Academy for low grades in 1905, during a purge that resulted in the dismissal of nearly a fourth of the cadets. Following his expulsion, Smith went to New York and worked in a number of jobs. While he was working in the basement of Gimbles, Richardson's talents as a salesman were discovered by the Bedford Manufacturing Company of Massachusetts. He joined Bedford and was working for that company when his father requested his help. In 1907, Smith Richardson brought his talents home to North Carolina to turn his father's business around.

Smith Richardson's prescription for a healthy company was to focus its efforts on selling the product that brought in the most money Vicks Croup and Pneumonia Salve. By about 1911, the other remedies had been dropped, and the company had changed its name to Vick Chemical Company and its product's name to the catchy Vicks VapoRub.

Richardson was an aggressive salesman and an innovative advertising manager. He traveled all over North Carolina, and then the southeast, from drugstore to drugstore, and country store to country store, selling VapoRub. First he and the sales force traveled by horse and buggy, and then by Model T Ford. For his efforts, Smith Richardson was made a partner in 1911.

The company's advertising strategies were revolutionary. Vick Chemical Company was one of the first businesses to use such techniques as road signs, store displays, street car advertising, "mark out" slogans, and free samples. When the company began expanding its territory north and west, it was one of the first companies to take advantage of Rural Free Delivery, by sending samples through the mail.

In 1913, Smith Richardson's brother Lunsford Richardson, Jr. (1891 1953), known as "Lump," began working for the company as office manager and assistant sales and advertising manager. By 1917, he was made a partner.

The great influenza epidemic of 1918-1919 gave VapoRub a tremendous boost. The company produced VapoRub twenty four hours a day, and still could not keep up with the demand. In 1919, Lunsford Richardson died, leaving a booming business to his two sons. Smith Richardson became the company's president.

The company grew rapidly in the 1920s. Another plant was built in Philadelphia in 1923. Also in 1923, VapoRub was exported overseas to England, and south to Mexico. An export department was opened in New York in 1924, to handle what was to become big business for the company, selling VapoRub overseas.

In 1925, the Richardsons decided to sell one fourth of their stock in Vick Chemical Company to the public. The stock was primarily bought by employees and people in the drug trade. Smith Richardson turned over the presidency to his brother Lunsford in 1929, and took on the responsibility of long range planning for the now very successful business. He realized that Vick Chemical Company was a one product organization, that the growth potential of that product was limited, and that the company needed to diversify. To that end, Vick Chemical Company merged in 1930 with Sterling Products, Bristol Myers Company, Life Savers, and United Drug Company to form a giant conglomerate called Drug Inc.

Despite the stock market crash of 1929 and the economic chaos that followed, Vick Chemical Company continued to do well. People still caught colds, depression or no depression. In 1931, Va tro nol Nosedrops and Vicks Cough Drops were introduced. Both were almost instantly successful.

Although Vick did well, some of the other Drug Inc. companies were failing. As a result, Drug Inc. "demerged" in 1933, and Vick Chemical Company was on its own again.

In 1938, William Preyer, the Richardsons' brother in law, took over the presidency of the company. The same year, Vick merged with the William J. Merrell Company, the nation's oldest pharmaceutical company. Merrell was the first in a long line of Vick acquisitions. Others included J. T. Baker, an industrial and laboratory chemical company, in 1941; Prince Matchabelli, a perfume and cosmetic company, in 1941; Jensen Salsbury, a veterinary pharmaceutical company, in 1946; Extruded Plastics, Inc., a container company, in 1953; National Drug Company, in 1956; and Walker Labs, in 1958.

After William Preyer retired in 1948, Edward Mabry became the first non family member to be president of the company. The family, however, continued to play an important role in the company on the board of directors. Smith Richardson spent much of his energy developing a thirty five year plan to guide and direct the company's growth. Smith Richardson, Jr. (b. 1920), succeeded Mabry as president in 1958. He served until 1962, when Robert Marschalk replaced him.

The company changed its name in 1960 to Richardson Merrell, Inc., thereby honoring the founders of the two biggest divisions of the company and reflecting its diversified nature.

Richardson Merrell, Inc., continued to grow in the 1960s and 1970s. It acquired still more divisions and exported many of its products all over the world. Smith Richardson, Sr., died in 1972, with the company firmly under family control.

In 1980, the company decided to narrow its focus from pharmaceuticals to consumer products. Merrell was sold to Dow Chemical Company, and the company's name was changed to Richardson Vicks, Inc. The company produced and sold the traditional cold care products like VapoRub, cough syrup, and cough drops; and many other products including Vidal Sasoon and Pantene hair care products, and Clearasil and Oil of Olay face care products.

In fall 1985, Unilever, a Dutch/British company, attempted a hostile takeover of Richardson Vicks, Inc. In order to prevent the takeover attempt, the Richardson family, which owned a controlling thirty six percent of the stock in the company, decided to sell the business to the Procter & Gamble Company. After eighty prosperous years, the Richardsons were forced to give up the company that made their fortune on the contents of "the little blue jar," Vicks VapoRub.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

This collection documents the history of Richardson Vicks, Inc., and of the Richardson family's involvement with the company. The collection consists of the files of H. Smith Richardson, Sr., while he was president of the company from 1919 to 1929; files pertaining to the operation of the company, chiefly generated by the General Manager's Department; files from the Advertising and Sales Department, including campaign books; financial and legal papers; personnel materials; files from the Production Department; "historical material"; clippings; files of H. Smith Richardson, Jr., concerning hostile takeover bids; family papers; product samples; photographs; an audio disc; and a video tape.

Although the papers include material from the early years of the company through its sale to Proctor & Gamble Company in 1985, the bulk of material dates from 1919 to 1929, the period when H. Smith Richardson, Sr., was president of the company. Coverage of the years before 1919 is scant, consisting of a few mementoes and some correspondence. Coverage of the years 1929 to 1985 is very uneven. A notable exception is material from the Advertising and Sales Department, which is nearly complete from 1920 to 1960.

Every attempt was made during processing to preserve or reconstruct the original order of these files. This proved difficult for most of the material since the records reached the Southern Historical Collection in much disarray. The arrangement of Series 1, Subseries 2.7, and Series 3 does closely reflect the original filing system. In other cases, material has been organized into series and subseries primarily according to subject matter, and within each series and subseries in alphabetical order according to the original folder titles. All discernible original folder titles have been preserved, and the original order of items within folders has been maintained.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. H. Smith Richardson Files, 1916-1929.

About 9,000 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by folder title.

Chiefly correspondence between H. Smith Richardson or his secretary and employees, stockholders, retail and wholesale drug sellers, bankers, stock brokers, friends, and family members. Also included are some memos, reports, notes, bills, receipts, speeches, and other materials relating to the correspondence.

The distinction between the material in this series and material pertaining to H. Smith Richardson in other series is that the material in these files seems to have been handled personally by H. Smith Richardson or his secretary, whereas H. Smith Richardson papers in other series derive from files maintained by others in the company.

These files document a wide range of H. Smith Richardson's professional and personal activities during the period when he was president of Vick Chemical Company, from 1919 to 1929. Some earlier material from the period when he was Advertising and Sales Manager is also included.

For material pertaining to the company, consult folders bearing the names of organizations, companies, and banks. For individual correspondents, check the general alphabetical files (e.g., the "A" file), and folders bearing individual correspondents' names. See folders labeled "Clubs," "Hunting," "Fishing," "Residences," "Receipts," "Servants," and "Speeches" for material pertaining to Richardson's personal activities. Family correspondence is filed under the names of family members, chiefly Richardsons and Smiths. The Smiths were H. Smith Richardson's wife's family, which included a number of prominent southern educators, like Henry Louis Smith, president of Washington and Lee University. Richardson's commitment to charity and service is well documented in the series under "Boy Scouts," "Benevolences," "Community Chest," and "YMCA." Also included is material concerning Davidson College's Board of Trustees, upon which Richardson served (folders 110-119). Richardson was also involved in the domestic war effort during World War I. See "United War Work Campaign" (folders 386-388), and also "Letters to Vick Employees Fighting Overseas" (folders 401-402).

Richardson's speeches on tax reform are included in this series (folders 364-368). See Subseries 2.6. Taxes for more information on tax reform. Some material on H. Smith Richardson's stock trading is included here (folders 371-373), but also see Subseries 4.2. Investments for more complete coverage of Richardson's investments. For personal correspondence that predates or antedates the period covered in this series, see Subseries 8.4. Richardson Family Material (folders 1713-1716).

Information on Richardson's trip to England to begin the company's export business is included in this series (folders 132-147). For more information on exports see Subseries 3.4. Export Department.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 2. Operations Material, 1919-1984.

About 3,000 items.

The material in this series deals with the overall operation of the company and was chiefly generated by executives in the General Manager's Department. The bulk of the material dates from 1916 to 1940. The materials in this series differ from the materials in subsequent ones in that these files deal with the company as a whole, whereas other series pertain to the operations of specific departments of the company like the Advertising and Sales Department, Production Department, and Legal Department. This series is divided into nine subseries: 2.1. Conferences; 2.2. Memoranda; 2.3. Office Manuals; 2.4. Reports; 2.5. 35 Year Plan; 2.6. Taxes; 2.7. Lunsford Richardson, Jr. Files; 2.8. Drug Inc.; and 2.9. Other Operations Materials.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 2.1. Conferences, 1922-1953.

About 50 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by conference, then chronological.

Chiefly minutes of various executive conferences of Vick Chemical Company with some relevant memoranda, notes, reports, and exhibits included. These conferences were called by various names: Annual Conferences, General Managers Conferences, and Management Conference Programs. They all seem to have been meetings at which the executives of the company reviewed the progress of various departments, made plans for the coming years, and discussed policy. Some were yearly meetings, others monthly. The records of these conferences are incomplete. There are no records of conferences prior to 1922, from 1923 to 1926, or from 1930 to 1948, and no records after 1953. Also included is material concerning an annual conference of Richardson Realty, a subsidiary of Vick Chemical Company.

About 300 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Correspondence, memos, reports, exhibits, manuals, booklets, notes, and drafts pertaining to H. Smith Richardson's brainchild, the "35 Year Plan."

The bulk of material in this subseries consists of many drafts of the ""35 Year Plan"" with corrections, comments, and memos attached; memos to the board of directors of the company about the plan; and material about the "Greensboro Experiment," which was an attempt by management to discover both how well employees understood the plan and their commitment to it.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 2.7. Lunsford Richardson, Jr., Files, 1916-1917.

About 700 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Correspondence, memos, form letters, forms, notes, employee examinations, and statistics from the files of Lunsford Richardson, Jr., during 1916 and 1917, when he was office manager and assistant sales manager for Vick Chemical Company. This is one of the few sets of files that arrived at the Southern Historical Collection intact and as originally organized. It reflects how the company was managed when it was a small business run out of one office, and when the Richardsons were involved with the daily operational minutiae. The files include sales and advertising, personnel, personal, production, and basic housekeeping materials, frequently mixed in a way that reflects the very fluid and flexible nature of the company at the time.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 3. Advertising and Sales, 1912-1966 and undated.

About 9,000 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Materials dealing with the advertisement and sales of Vick's products both domestically and in foreign markets. Although advertising and sales were covered by the same department, there was a definite separation of duties between advertising and sales, with each section keeping separate records of its activities. The advertising section dealt with outside ad agencies, originated some advertising itself, and dealt with newspapers, radio stations, and others that ran Vick's advertisements. The sales section handled orders for products and distribution, and ran promotional campaigns aimed at retailers and wholesalers.

The arrangement of the series reflects the organization of the Advertising and Sales Department. Subseries 3.2, "General," contains only material that deals with the department as a whole, material that does not fall neatly into either the advertising or the sales sections. Subseries 3.2, "Domestic Advertising," and 3.3, "Domestic Sales," deal with domestic advertising and domestic sales respectively. Subseries 3.4, "Export Advertising Sales," deals with both the advertising and the sale of Vick's products in foreign markets. Subseries 3.2 arrived in no recognizable order and arrangement was imposed on it during processing. The rest of the series was kept in its original order and the original folder titles retained.

See Series 9 ("Volumes") for additional material relating to campaign histories.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.1. General, 1922/23-1966.

About 1,000 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Chiefly memos, minutes, and agendas of Vick's annual sales and advertising conferences and "idea" conferences, coverage being strongest for the 1920s. These conferences brought the component sections of the advertising and sales department together, along with the general management of the company. Each section reported its activities and goals for the year. Budget allocations within the department were also worked out in these conferences.

Some miscellaneous memos and trainee profiles are also included. The trainee profiles contain pictures and short resumes of trainees recruited by the advertising and sales department from colleges across the country.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 3.2. Domestic Advertising, 1912-1958, and undated.

About 1,200 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Copy proofs, samples of ads, original sketches, advertising records, medical reviews of ads, memos, and correspondence detailing the Vick Company's extensive use of advertising in marketing their products throughout the company's history. Samples of ads and copy proofs have been separated from the other materials where possible, but researchers should note that some copy can be found attached to insertion orders, within the yearly "data books," and in the medical reviews of ads. The medical reviews also contain verbatim scripts of Vick's radio ads. The yearly "data books" were originally bound and contain memos, letters to newspapers, records of costs, schedules of publication, and samples of ads run. Note that the bulk of ad samples and copy proofs came from newspapers. The folders labeled "correspondence between New York and Greensboro" held correspondence between the ad office in New York and company management in Greensboro. The oversize advertising material (see folder 964) consists primarily of carcards, apparently produced for streetcar advertising. See also Series 9 for proofbooks and samples of materials used in advertising campaigns.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 4. Financial Material, 1914-1929.

About 4,300 items.

The material in this series concerns two major aspects of Vick Chemical Company's finances from 1914 to 1929 the investment of the company's assets and the sale of public stock in 1925. Because members of the Richardson family were at first the only stockholders in the company, and then, after 1925, the controlling stockholders, the assets of Vick Chemical Company were the family's private fortune. Therefore, the management of the Richardson family's investment was company business.

The material is arranged into four subseries: Subseries 4.1, "Auditors' Reports"; Subseries 4.2, "Investment"; Subseries 4.3, "Financial Holding Companies"; and Subseries 4.4, "Vick Chemical Company Stock."

For other financial papers see Stock and Bond Trading(folders 371 373) in Series 1, Budgets (folders 443 446) in Subseries 2, and Lunsford Richardson, Jr.'s personal financial material (folders 1728 1733) in Subseries 8.4.

Correspondence, memos, reports, and notes of two financial holding companies of Vick Chemical Company, Piedmont Finance and Realty Company and Piedmont Finance Company. Piedmont Finance and Realty Company was organized in 1923, and was dissolved and reformed as Piedmont Finance Company in 1926.

About 400 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical by folder title.

Correspondence, memos, exhibits, documents, advertise ments, and clippings pertaining to various legal cases in which Vick Chemical Company and its successors were involved. Cases include: the Association of American Advertising Agencies case, which involved a dispute between Vick Chemical Company and AAAA about whether Vick should be allowed, when advertising direct, the discount that newspapers give advertising agencies; the Batten case, which concerned Vick's dissatisfaction with Batten advertising and the company's refusal to pay for the unsatisfactory services; the Thalidomide case, which dealt with birth defects resulting from pregnant women's use of the drug thalidomide; and the Vick Chemical Company versus the Vick Medical Company case, which concerned the Vick Chemical Company's dispute with the Vick Medical Company over the use of the Vick name. Items of interest include the drafts of various Vick advertisements used as exhibits in the Batten case and Vick Chemical vs. Vick Medical Company, and documentation of the litigation expenses in the Thalidomide case. Coverage of these cases is limited, and many other legal disputes are not represented in this material.

Also included is personal legal advice from James F. Hoge (general counsel for the company) to H. Smith Richardson concerning real estate, taxes, stocks, life insurance, and the changing of the current game laws. See addition of August 1989 for materials on Bendectin case.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 6. Personnel, 1916-1980.

About 1,000 items.

Arrangement: alphabetical.

Applications, time books, employee examinations, reports, handbooks, company newspapers, notes, correspondence, memos, statistics, and opinion surveys documenting the relationship between Vick Chemical Company and its employees. This series is a hodgepodge of material dealing with a wide variety of personnel issues including hiring, morale, training, bonuses, and benefits over a period of sixty years. No particular period is thoroughly documented, although there is some material for most years.

Of particular interest are the employee examinations that the company administered to applicants to test intelligence and general knowledge. The examinations are frequently accompanied by applications and carbons of acceptance letters. Some of the top executives' original entry tests and applications are included (folders 1516-1527). Also of interest are thank you letters from employees who received cash bonuses during the Depression (folder 1562). See Subseries 2.5 for material on the "Greensboro Experiment" which was an attempt by the management of Vick Chemical Company to determine how committed employees were to the "35 Year Plan."

About 400 items.

Arrangement: alphabetically by file title.

Correspondence, reports, printed materials, articles, and writings of H. Smith Richardson, Jr., concerning hostile takeover in general, and the hostile takeover bid of Unilever for Richardson Vicks Inc. in 1985. Following the loss of Richardson Vicks to Procter and Gamble Company in the aftermath of the Unilever bid, Richardson became an outspoken critic of the hostile takeover of companies by corporate raiders. He corresponded extensively with academics, politicians, business people, and journalists soliciting support for his views. Correspondents include Daniel Bell, professor of sociology at Harvard University; Louis Lowenstein, professor of Law at Columbia University; Irving Kristol, editor of The Public Interest; Margaret Cox Sullivan, president of Stockholders of America; Martin Feldstein, president of the National Bureau of Economic Research; Rollie Tillman, Jr., of the Institute of the Study of Private Enterprise, UNC CH; Warren Rudman, United States senator; William Proxmire, United States senator; and Melvin Laird. Richardson also wrote articles, gave speeches, sat on panels, and helped fund a Harris Poll on hostile takeovers. See Subseries 8.2 for clippings relating to hostile takeovers, and Subseries 11.3 for a videotape of an interview with Richardson at the Brookings Institute on the subject of hostile takeovers.

Smith Richardson to his family during his various illnesses (folders 1720-1721); material on the Richardson Foundation (folders 1717 and 1722-1723); and a joke book written by Grace Richardson, H. Smith Richardson's wife, mailed to family and friends after her death in 1962 (folder 1724). The joke book contains examples of traditional Southern humor, mostly about the relationship between wealthy whites and their black servants. See also additions of August 1989 and September 1991.
