Anyone know anything about Gold Bond Powder?

I'm interested in learning about the history of Gold Bond Powder -- who invented it, when, why... that sort of thing. Maybe some images of old bottles or vintage ads, historical documents, whatever. My Googling has turned up surprisingly little for such a well-known product. Any help, hive mind?

Help me find this ad.

Help me find this ad: American Express ad in a magazine, early 1990s: a classroom, fifth grade maybe, kids at desks in traditional rows. Books open on desks, maybe a teacher at the blackboard. One little girl's open book shows an American Express card instead of what should be inside the book. The implication is she's daydreaming about what she wants to buy.

Online Advertising and Marketing

PPC, CPM, SEO, SEM, Ad Buy, Advertising and Marketing Filter: My Company is now making a big push into email marketing and lead and customer nurturing. We bought “Eloqua” to do this, and I am charged with the implementation. Since I want to "add the most value" I can, I am looking for resources (especially blogs, but books are good too) that are well respected, and that can help me get up to speed with my understanding of industry parlance, technique, best practices, theory, and execution of online advertising and marketing in all its forms (We are going to be making a push into search engine marketing as well). So far I have read "The Long Tail" and "Digital Body Language" I am also interested in keeping up with industry news and events, as well as new technologies and implementations.
