Description

These advertisements, just over 100 in all, were donated to AIHP by Mickey Smith, the F.A.P. Barnard Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Pharmacy Administration at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy.

Mickey Smith is an avid collector of pharmacy ephemera; these ads were taken from prominent medical journals published during the 1950s through the 1980s and depict a range of popular antianxiety medications prescribed at the time to reduce anxiety due to stress, nervous conditions, or serious medical ailments.
