BRIEF HISTORY OF PHARMACY

The first physician of recorded history was Imhotep, 3,000 B.C. who prepared his own drugs.

The first written reference to pharmacy came 1400 years later in Greece.

Galen, born 130 A.D. achieved the record of writing medical treatises which made him the authority on drugs for the next 1300 years.

The first pharmacy was established in Bagdad in the eighth century A.D.

The first pharmacopeia was published in Nurenburg, Germany in 1542. The first in U.S.A. in 1820. There was no College of Pharmacy in U.S.A. until 1821.

In 1873 Col. A. G. Sturgiss established the first pharmacy in Oakland, Maryland.


PHARMACY TODAY

A professional utilizing the skills of a complex scientific society. A registered pharmacist with five years of formal college training is equipped to handle the synthesised organic products of research laboratories. From the Research Laboratory through the Prescription Drug Manufacturer to the Retail Pharmacist provides drugs which could not have been purchased with a king's ransom even a generation ago.

ENGLANDER'S PHARMACY in Oakland is serving this trading area through three registered pharmacists from 8:30 A.M. to 10:30 P.M. daily, including Sundays. We are proud of the heritage of the past upon which today's miracles are based. We are preparing for the pharmacy of tomorrow which will increasingly utilize the products of the atom pile, the exotic isotopes of the laboratory that will bring hope and health to more of the people.
