Professing to be a graduate of the Philadelphia University of Medicine and Surgery, Dr. Ray Vaughn Pierce went on to become one of the wealthiest doctors in America. After a brief four year practice in Pennsylvania, Pierce moved to Buffalo, New York, where he began to produce a licorice flavored tonic that carried the name Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. His very sucessful marketing scheme used barn billboards, calendars, notebook ads and user testimonials. Between 1867 and 1880, his elixir brought in a half million dollars a year.
