Title

Opium 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Opium" printed in 1954. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "The poppy flower, supplier of crude opium. In the right hand one of the greatest contributions to medicine. In the wrong hand, the beginning of the end!" Side poster #1 reads: "Your pharmacist is the legal custodian of all drugs & medicines in the United States." Side poster #2 reads: "Your pharmacist works for better community health."
