James Whitman McLamore was co-founder of the Burger King fast food franchise with David Edgerton. Both were graduates of Cornell University.

McLamore was an employee and also a business man before. Edgerton originally opened Insta Burger King in Miami, Florida on March 1, 1954. Three months later on June 1, he met McLamore and they formed the Burger King Corporation. It opened Burger King stores and went on to introduce the Whopper burger in 1957, when it also dropped Insta from the name. The pair sold the business to Pillsbury in 1967 and McLamore served as Burger King's president until 1970, and was chairman to 1976.
