Naughter, who helped design their well-known dental J-Chair in 1958; it allowed dentists to sit next to their reclined patients; Earl Nightingale is credited with starting the self-help industry with his top-selling "The Strangest Secret", written and recorded in 1956; the secret was "We become what we think"
