The Ja-Ri Corporation was incorporated on September 6, 1949, by Jay Van Andel and Richard DeVos. Ja-Ri sold Nutrilite vitamin supplements distributed by Mytinger & Casselberry, Inc., the exclusive marketers of Nutrilite at that time. Amway, successor to Ja-Ri, subsequently purchased M & C and Nutrilite. The collection includes correspondence (1941-1963), distributor records (1949-1963), Nutrilite News, Edith Rehnborg Cosmetics records, General Topical Files maintained by Jay Van Andel and Richard DeVos, and other records documenting this critical pre-Amway collection.
