Read an excerpt from American Pharmacy (1852-2002): A Collection of Historical Essays (AIHP, 2005).

Preface: The essays contained in this booklet were first published in the Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association as part of the sesquicentennial celebration of the APhA. Working with the editorial staff of the Journal, I helped to determine the topics and authors of the series, which was published during 2000, 2001, and 2002. George Griffenhagen contributed valuable input and selected appropriate illustrations from the APhA Foundation archives.

After receiving requests from instructors, the Institute decided to collate the pieces by topic into a single booklet. Far from a comprehensive text (each general subject deserves its own book-length treatment) this set of essays instead serves as an introduction to six key aspects of pharmacy’s history in the United States from 1852 to 2002: Practice, Science, Education, Industry, Organizations, and Governance. Composes by nine different authors, the essays sometimes overlap and repeat information, which reflects the interwoven reality of the complex pharmaceutical enterprise. Rather than edit out these redundancies, we have left them in so that easy essay remains useful for teaching and reference purposes.
