As a child in the early 1960's in Louisville, Kentucky, I remember the Fuller Brush man selling brushes door-to-door.   The Fuller Brush Company has been around for since the turn of the previous century and are still in business and have a web site www.fuller.com.  A nice email to them may get you a wealth of information.

You can also try doing a google search for door-to-door salesman.
