Edward Loughlin Mabry (1897–1989), was an American author, poet, and chemical tycoon.
During World War I Edward Mabry joined the Vick Chemical Company, founded by Lunsford Richardson in 1898. Vicks today is best known for its VapoRub, DayQuil, and NyQuil brands, and it was once home to Icy Hot and Oil of Olay as well. In 1948, after 32 years with the company in sales and advertising, Mabry was named President. In 1957 he also became chairman of the board of directors. Vicks became Richardson Merrell Inc. after merging with Marion Merrell Dow, and in 1985 was sold to Procter & Gamble, where it remains as a brand and product division.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
