Jordan W. Lambert
Birth: Dec. 2, 1851
Death: Jan. 6, 1889

After being engaged for a while in the insurance business in Virginia, Jordan came to St. Louis in 1873. He became connected with the wholesale drug house of A.A. Mellier & soon became its head bookkeeper & confidential clerk to the head of the house. While acting in this capacity, he also made a study of the chemistry of the drug business & soon became an expert in that department. As a result of his researches in this field, he discovered the formula for the manufacture of Listerine, which at once found favor with the medical profession & with the general public. In 1881 he organized the Lambert Pharmacal Company & was president of the corporation from its inception until his death. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
