In 1959, Procter & Gamble, a Cincinnati company, began to market Pampers, which were disposable diapers. Victor Mills, the head of the Exploratory Product Division of Procter & Gamble and a grandparent at the time, was tired of changing and washing cloth diapers, so he developed an absorbent, leak-proof diaper that could be simply thrown away after use. His product, which Procter & Gamble produced and marketed, became known as Pampers. The product was first sold in Rochester, New York. The diapers were so popular that Procter & Gamble quickly began to sell Pampers nationwide. Today, disposable diapers are a $10 billlion-per-year industry.
