"Some years ago a method of manufacturing white brick from Georgia Kaolin and apatite rock was developed. This was successful for supplying an attractive white brick to the southern trade, until difficulties were encountered in securing apatite rock of sufficiently high grade to insure the continuance of manufacture of the brick...With the foregoing facts at hand, a study was made of the utilization of an auxiliary flux to replace the apatite rock. A commercial brick was developed, wherein eight (8) per cent of this flux, with forty-two (42) per cent potters flint and fifty (50) per cent Georgia Kaolin was used"--Introduction, page 4.
