Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Insulin" 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: "Insulin. Discovered at Univ. of Toronto by doctors Banting & Best, 1922.
