Walker’s relationship with Dr Pepper started back in 1989 and continues to this day. Walker has spent time working at Dr Pepper/Seven-Up in Dallas, Texas, the Dublin Dr Pepper plant, and the Dr Pepper Museum & Free Enterprise Institute right here in Waco, Texas! Walker saw the need for a book Dr Pepper collectors could use to help identify and date objects in their collections. To complete her book, Walker wanted to tell the story of the Dr Pepper’s advertising in the 20th century. The finished product is a beautiful piece of Dr Pepper history that belongs in the collection of every Dr Pepper lover and collector!
