Doc Morgan Inc. was founded in 1974 by G.H. “Doc” Morgan who’s history in the business began in 1929 as a high school class ring salesman while attending college himself. This experience working for the Herff-Jones Company led Mr. Morgan to develop a fascination and love for the emblematic jewelry business.
In 1934 he moved to Chicago to open and run a local office for Herff-Jones, followed by a branch factory in 1938. This operation was maintained while Mr. Morgan served two years with the U.S. Army during W.W.II after which he returned to the Chicago area and resumed his career.
In the years that followed, Mr. Morgan’s entrepreneurial spirit motivated him to open his own business. He purchased the Herff-Jones office and Chicago factory and Morgans Inc. was launched. In 1953 Morgans Inc. moved from Chicago to its current location in the western suburban town of St. Charles Illinois. During the early 1970’s Lenox Awards (a division of the famous Lenox China) acquired Morgans Inc. and Doc Morgan Inc. was established. Moving from the east side of St. Charles across the Fox River to it’s current location at 108 South Second Street.
Since that time, Doc Morgan Inc. has had the privilege of serving national/international groups as well as corporate accounts. Some of those being Altrusa International, Zonta International, YMCA of the USA, Lions International, Realtors, Job’s Daughters International, American Association of Medical Assistants, plus many local hospitals, financial institutions and municipalities.
Mr. Morgan elected to retire at the age of 92 years and passed away February 18, 2003. The legacy he created will stand the test of time. His high expectations for value, quality, service and detail continue to this day. Doc Morgan Inc. is now owned and run by two of Mr. Morgan’s long time employees. Collectively they have over 50 years tutelage under the guidance of Mr. Morgan.
