Beemans Chewing Gum Flash Drive

I figured I would share this with everyone else. I came across a tweet by JonathanHickman...

Do they make flash drives that look like a pack of gum?
Bobrot had a great response to the question, which I find to be fitting for this website.
@JHickman Wow, I would totally buy a flash drive that looked like a pack of Beemans Gum.
If it does exist it that would be totally cool.

New York Times Obituary: DR. E. E. BEEMAN DEAD.

On November 7 1906 The New York Times printed Dr. Edwin E. Beeman's obituary. It reads......

DR. E.E. BEEMAN DEAD.; Chewing Gum King Gave Up Medicine to Become a Manufacturer.

Special to The New York Times,

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov. 6. -Dr. Edwin E. Beeman, who was known as the "Chewing Gum King," died here early this morning. He has been afflicted with paralysis for several years. Twenty-five years ago Dr. Beeman gave up practice of medicine here for the manufacture of chewing gum. It was said that the idea of combining pepsin with gum was suggested to him by a young women who worked in a newsstand where he bought gum, and that he always took good care of her after he made millions.

Dr. Beeman often said that the success for his business was due in great measure to his advertising campaign. Everywhere was the picture of Dr. Beeman with the words telling the virtues of pepsin gum. He took into partnership W. J. White, now of New York. Dr Beeman sold out his chewing gum interests several years ago.

You can see the link to the pdf file here. We still don't know when Dr. Edwin E. Beeman was born, but we at least now know that he died on Nov, 6, 1906.

One more interesting thing to note from this article, it mentions that he got the idea to put pepsin into chewing gum from a girl working at a newsstand. On our beemans gum history page, we wrote that....

It was actually his bookkeeper, Nellie Horton, who suggested that he put the pepsin into chewing gum. Until then, Dr. Beeman had been selling bottles of powdered pepsin.

It may be that the New York Times was wrong.

If anyone has any supporting evidence to back up either claim, please let us know.

When Was Dr Edwin (Edward) Beeman Born?

When was the doctor born? Our page about Dr Edwin Beeman, states that he was born in 1840. We got that info from Ancestry.com, which we will consider as a reliable source.

But I came across a new page, which states that Edwin E. Beeman was born in 1839. So I don't know what year he was born in, not to mention I have no idea what his birth date is.

Do you know when Dr. Beeman was born? Better yet do you know his birthday? If yes please let me know in the comments below.

Thanks.
