Title

Medical Miracles 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Medical Miracles" printed in 1956. 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: "Added Years: Medical Miracles have increased life expectancy from 48 in 1900 to 68 in 1956." Side poster #1 reads: "Pharmacy's contribution to today's longer life expectancy, discovery and use of insulin, sulfa drugs, penicillin, mycin drugs, cortisone, vitamins. Contributing factors in America's health progress." Side poster #2 reads: "Things to come in the future: victories over cancer, heart diseases, mental diseases. Medical triumphs over all communicable diseases."
