Biographical / Historical:
The Salem China Company of Salem, Ohio was founded in 1898 by Pat and John McNichol, Dan Cronin and William Smith, all from East Liverpool, Ohio. It was sold to the F.A. Sebrings of Sebring, Ohio in 1918. Until retirement in 1950, Floyd W. McKee, who had been with the company since 1918, was the general manager. When he retired in 1950 J. Harrison Keller, the husband of F.A. Sebring's granddaughter, Gretchen, took over the management of the company. Harrison Keller was also president of the United States Potters Association, the principal function of which was labor negotiations. From 1898 until 1960 the company was engaged in both manufacturing and distribution. Since 1960, its function has been distribution only.

In addition to the manufacture and distribution of dinnerware, novelty and souvenirware, the Salem China Co. distributed flatware, crystal and Corningware and was the American distributor for the James Sadler Company, English manufacturers of teapots. The company supplemented its sales to retail outlets by heavy reliance on bank, movie, drugstore and supermarket promotions. For example, Peoples Drug Co. used over 150,000 thirty two piece sets of dishes from the Salem China Co. in the 1930's with the buyer paying $2.98 for a set costing $2.72 at the factory. During the 30's also, about 130 carloads of Salem dinnerware were used by American Stores in Philadelphia in promotions. In 1993, the president of the Salem China Co. was Gary Keller.

Scope and Contents:
Donaldson Brothers imprint at bottom of one card, but another does not carry it (imprint does not show in the copy which was scanned). Donaldson Brothers card also has advertising text on verso, along with a rubber stamp imprint from Moore & Smith, Watertown, N.Y. Illustration shows Chinese men boarding boats, one with sail marked "off for China," while Caucasian men wearing white shirts with celluloid cuffs and collars swim in the ocean. Caption at bottom: "No more washee washee, Melican man wear celluloid collar and cuff." The implication is that celluloid would put Chinese laundries out of business, forcing Chinese immigrants to return to China.
