Tom Lyle Williams with his nephew Bill Williams, (my dad,) discussing the good old day's when Maybelline was Maybell Laboratories and Lash-Brow-Ine sold for 50 cents in 1915. This picture was taken in 1972, five years after Tom Lyle sold the Maybelline Company to Plough Inc. He was never the same and regretted not preparing the next generation to take over the company. For the next four years his health declined to the point, he refused to be seen any longer.
