Henry Pope Clearwater, Ph.D., known to the world as Dr. Clearwater, was forced out of the mail order pill business by the Federal Government in 1942. From 1942 until 1948 he relied on Oint-Ease as his primary source of income. Oint-Ease was a muscle relaxing liniment that had been formally called Joint-Ease. Sales records show that Oint-Ease was sold in drugstores nationwide. His 1940s order book is a record of large and small pharmacies across the nation.

Dr. Clearwater died in 1952 and the business was liquidated.
