On October 7th, 1946 I received my Diplomat signed by William M. Scholl,MD, President of The Scholl Mfg. Inc. It stated that I had honorably completed the Course of Instructions in Fitting and Adjusting Dr. Scholl’s Foot Comfort Appliances. I was just 17 years old and I was working after school in Thompson’s Shoe Store in Detroit, Michigan. I was ready to relieve the whole human race of foot pain from fallen arches. We had an X-ray machine and it also helped me fit any customer’s foot for comfort. Below is my old business card and I could rattle off the names of every bone in the human foot. I fitted a lot of folks with arch supports and many would come back and tell me of the relief they provided. When I was eighteen I moved on to the Michigan National Bank and drove their mail car taking mail from one branch to another. The same year I found employment with the Grand Trunk Western Railroad and worked for them for 35 years. Oh I took a leave to serve in the army for a couple of years but from 1948 to 1983 I was on the railroad rolls.. Oh, the business cards fellow accumulates during a lifetime.
