    "Better lives through chemistry"

    If you know which company had this tagline in advertising, you are probably old enough to have been in the Mickey Mouse Club.

    I think it was "better living through chemistry". Was that Ron Reagan?

    "better living through chemistry"
    During the late 1960s and early 1970s this slogan was often seen in various places around San Francisco (and likely other cities). It was more of a reference to a composition originating in the laboratories of Sandoz in Basel, Switzerland.

    Yup, Dupont was the one I was referring to, but my memory was slightly off kilter.

    For some reason, this got me remembering GE's 'Parade of Progress' building (if I remember that name right), at Disneyland way back when.

    PS: Don't know who the prez of the club could be , I was too busy watching my first love, Annette grow up .

    Now for the next question. "We don't make the product, only make the product better."

    In the 1960's the phrase "Better Living Through Chemistry" was used just about as often as "Burn Your Draft Card" or the term "Plastic People"
