Richard E. Davis

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Richard E. Davis was born in Joplin, Missouri back in 1926. He graduated from Topeka High School in 1944. He was a piano child prodigy composing many jazz and blues numbers.   After graduation, he joined the U.S. Army and was discharged after the war ended. He attended Washburn University, Columbia University and Colorado College. He received his medical degree from the University of Kansas in 1954.

He was a Board-Certified Adult and Child Psychiatrist. He served as the Board Examiner in Psychiatry and Neurology from 1972-1986. In a publication in the American Journal of Psychiatry he identified Manic-Depressive (Bi-polar) syndrome in childhood and its treatment. In 1977, he moved to Kansas City to pursue his other interest in the culinary. He combined several ingredients selling over 3,000 cases of it in Kansas City. In 1986, he sold his sauce to the Kingsford division of the Clorox company. He was invited to the annual barbecue at the White House by President George H.W. Bush and his son President George W. Bush.  

While you may not know Richard surely, you’ve heard of the sauce he sold, I have some of it in my refrigerator, K.C. Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce.

I definitely applaud his efforts in psychiatry more than his bbq sauce, although I have heard of it.
