Camel cigarettes have been offered by the Winston-Salem-based R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company since 1913 and were one of the first prepackaged cigarettes successfully sold in America. The R. J. Reynolds Company used unique advertising campaigns for Camel cigarettes, many of which appeared in newspapers, such as the Rockingham Post-Dispatch, and magazines throughout the 20th century, including the “More Doctors Smoke Camels” campaign.
