Title

AIHP James Harvey Young Drug Advertising Collection

Description

AIHP's James Harvey Young Drug Advertising Collection comprises 142 ads covering a range of medications produced in the United States in the mid-20th century. James Harvey Young (1915-2006) was the Charles Howard Candler Professor of American Social History at Emory University; he was noted for his groundbreaking research into patent drugs and quackery, and he made significant contributions to food and drug regulation in the United States, as well. He donated this collection of ads to AIHP.

Most of these ads were initially sent by direct mail from major pharmaceutical companies to a physician practicing at the time in Atlanta, GA (we have concealed this address where it appears to protect the privacy of this individual). A number of these ads are undated; other ads in the collection have dates listed or cite contemporaneous research, and for these ads we were able to provide dates and/or a date range.

For other drug advertising from the same time period, please visit AIHP's Mickey Smith Drug Advertising Collection.
