American Institute of the History of Pharmacy
Join us for the Annual Business Meeting.
In 1954, pharmacist Frank Pinchak of Paterson, New Jersey, developed a series of 34 public relations displays for drugstore front windows. As new laws and regulations of the mid-1950s restricted the professional scope of community pharmacy practice to routine prescription filling, public relations campaigns like Pinchak's stressed the role of pharmacists for properly dispensing powerful new drugs.
