  1. My father was an accountant for Allen B Wrisley in Chicago for many years. He died in 1953 and I remember probably about a year before he died they had a contest to name a new soap. I don't know who won the contest, but the name they chose was Sure X. My step mother used all of their products and I recognize many of them on this page. webshultz@hotmail.com
