In 1917, 15-year-old Ray Kroc lied about his age to join the Red Cross as an ambulance driver, but the war ended before he completed his training. He then worked as a piano player, a paper cup salesman and a Multimixer salesman.

In 1954, he visited a restaurant in San Bernardino, California that had purchased several Multimixers. There he found a small but successful restaurant run by brothers Dick and Mac McDonald, and was stunned by the effectiveness of their operation. They produced a limited menu, concentrating on just a few items – burgers, fries and beverages – which allowed them to focus on quality and quick service.

They were looking for a new agent and Kroc saw an opportunity. In 1955, he founded McDonald’s System, Inc., a predecessor of the McDonald’s Corporation, and six years later bought the exclusive rights to the McDonald’s name. By 1958, McDonald’s had sold its 100 millionth hamburger.

McGregor Clinic was founded as a private non-profit entity on November 15, 1999 by a group of proactive HIV/AIDS infected and affected individuals. The clinic was originally operated under the auspices of the Lee County Health Department, however, a rapidly growing epidemic and scarce financial resources forced the Health Department to terminate provider services in December of 1997. Disagreement over clinic closure, and the resulting void of personal choice in health care providers, incited a public meeting on January 6, 1998. Over 300 people congregated including clinic clients, friends, families, and the community at large, to request an opportunity to search for needed funding to maintain the clinic. This historical event produced the HIV/AIDS Patient Empowerment Coalition (HAPEC), created for the purpose of developing a strategic plan to operate the clinic as a non-profit entity. The coalition was comprised of clients from caregivers throughout the state, members of the business, medical and university communities and a strong representation of community advocates.
