In the early 1950s, ORVILLE REDENBACHER (1907-1995) developed the nation's first gourmet popcorn in his native Indiana. After selling out to Hunt-Wesson in 1976, the "folksy" Redenbacher continued as spokesman for the product. LEE IACOCCA, Iacocca, born in 1924, hired by Chrysler Corporation in 1979, bailed the company out by getting government financing, restricting operations and introducing innovative marketing. By 1981, Chrysler showed a small profit; three years later, the company announced record profits. Iacocca, who retired as CEO in 1992, had previously served as General Manager and Vice President of Ford and was credited with bringing the sporty, inexpensive and successful Mustang to market. Named President of Ford in 1970, he was dismissed eight years later. WALLY AMOS, born in 1936, calledthe man who "put the chic into chips" by Time magazine, opened his first chocolate chip cookie store in 1975. Within five years, his revenues reached $5 million, largely through sales to upscale department stores. In 1969, DAVE THOMAS (1932-2002), a former Kentucky Fried Chicken franchisee, founded Wendy's, a hamburger restaurant that featured his daughter's name and likeness. Thomas began appearing in advertising for Wendy's International, Inc. in 1989. Fine condition.
