What is Anti-Kink?



Goldsboro Weekly Argus, 5 April 1900.

Mercifully, I didn’t find a single relative of mine among folk giving testimonials for Smith’s Anti-Kink. (However, on a very different note, Dr. Joseph H. Ward, son of Napoleon Hagans and first cousin of my great-great-great-grandmother Louvicey Artis Aldridge, was the personal physician to Madame C. J. Walker, pioneer of the modern cosmetics industry. See A’Lelia Bundles’ engaging On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C.J. Walker for details of Walker and Ward’s relationship.)
