countries are also considered in the work.

Particular attention is paid to the latter part of this subject, not only as regards the chemical
preparations, but also the various inorganic salts and newer remedies. The subject of Homoepathic
Dispensing receives its due share of attention.

The laboratory work follows closely the plan of the lectures, the student ascertaining by appro-
priate tests the identity and purity of various compounds, and preparing many inorganic and
organic pharmaceutical preparations and salts, such as ointments, plasters, inorganic salts, organic
compounds, etc.

Pharmacy 109-110 — Advanced Pharmacy (for third year University Class).
Lectures and recitations, 3 hours. Laboratory work 5 hours, 11 points. Pro-
fessors DiEKMAN, WiMMER, Brown, Carter and instructors.

The course in this department consists of a series of lectures, laboratory exercises and recitation.
The scope of this work comprises the manufacture and study of a number of the more difficult
Pharmacopceial and National Formulary preparations, as well as of synthetic remedies. In the
manufacture of the latter class of preparations, especial emphasis will be laid upon the proper
assemblage, arrangement and use of apparatus.

The entire time assigned for work in the dispensing laboratory will be devoted to a compre-
hensive study of the subject of prescription incompatibilities. The large number of new remedies
which are constantly being employed make the work in this field attractive and valuable.

Pharmacy 111-112 — Dispensing Pharmacy (for third year College and
University Classes). Laboratory work, 2 hours, 2 points. Professors Wimmer,
Brown and Carter.

Text-books: U. S. Pharmacoiimia, 9th edition; National Standard Dispensatory, latest edition;
National Formulary, 4th edition.

Pharmacy 125-126 — Dispensing Pharmacy (for third year College Class).
Lectures and recitations, 4 hours, laboratory course, 4 hours, 12 points. Pro-
fessors DiEKMAN, Wimmer, Brown, Carter and instructors.

The lectures of this course embrace instruction in the reception, compounding, checking, labeling,
pricing and delivery of the prescription.

The work of the Dispensing Laboratory deals more especially with prescription difficulties and
embraces the all-important subject of chemical, pharmaceutical and therapeutical incompati-
bilities — those which may, as well as those which frequently do occur. The continual introduction
of new remedies renders the subject of prescription incompatibilities a never-ending study, and it is
the aim of this department to qualify its graduates for keeping pace with discovery.

Pharmacy 127-128 — Business Pharmacy (for second year College and
University Classes.) Without credit. Visiting lecturers.

This course will consist of a more detailed development of Pharmacy 63-64. The lectures will
be on practical subjects, handled in a manner which will further prepare the student for his re-
quirements as a business man.

Lectures by practical business men will be a feature of the course. This series of lectures will
give the student the principles of merchandising from a business man's viewpoint rather than that
of the pedagogue. These lectures, as well as those of the regular course are aimed to give the student
a better understanding of contemporary business problems.

Pharmacy 163-164 — Higher Pharmacy (for University Seniors). Lectures
and recitations, i3^ hours. Laboratory work 7 hours, 10 points. Professors
Diekman, Wimmer, Brown and Carter.

The work in this course consists of a series of lectures and practical laboratory exercises. The
manufacture and subsequent analysis of flavoring extracts, cosmetics, medicated gauzes, and
other articles of like nature, will receive the attention which this important subject merits. Proxi-
mate vegetable analysis will also be studied and carried on.

The time assigned for work in the dispensing laboratory will be devoted to the compounding
of difficult prescriptions. Pharmaceutical topics of current interest will be discussed in a series
of weekly seminars.

For ninety-seven consecutive years the College of Pharmacy of the City of
New York has maintained its annual courses of instruction for the education
and training of pharmacists. That this instruction has exhibited a steady ex-
tension and improvement is clearly recorded in the successive editions of its
annual prospectus. That such a result could not have been attained by the use
of students' fees, unaided by other resources, will be readily understood by all
who have had experience in educational administration. Such assistance may
be said to have begun with the generous contribution of free instruction services
by Professors Edward R. Squibb, Charles F. Chandler and others, in the early
history of the institution, and to have continued with the services of their suc-
cessors, and the unpaid management of officers and trustees. At various times,
financial crises have been met by generous donations of money by officers and
members, and occasionally by outside friends. In some cases, as when new
quarters were to be secured, a new building was to be erected, or herbarium or
apparatus to be bought, the sums thus contributed have been large, considering
the resources of those contributing.

As indicated in the preceding pages of this Announce-m-ent, in addition to the
regular course of two years, leading to the degree of Ph.G., the College now pro-
vides a regular course of three years, leading to the degree of Ph.Ch., with an
additional year of optional work, leading to the degree of B.S. in Phar.

Plans for a graduate course of two years, leading to the degree of Doctor of
Pharmacy, have been perfected by the Faculty, but cannot be carried out at the
present time, for want of the necessary material resources. That the strain of
such a charge upon those resources is very great, calling as it does for an increased
teaching force, newly equipped rooms and additional apparatus, requires no
explanatory statement.

It is not to be expected that the scanty revenue derived from the fees of the
small number of students who will pursue these advanced studies will begin to
provide the necessary means for meeting the additional expenditures. The Col-
lege must undertake these burdens as its contribution to pharmaceutical educa-

Under such conditions, it is felt that an appeal should be made to those who
are interested in promoting educational development in America to give their
favorable consideration and to lend their financial aid to the present efforts of
the School.

Since the actual instruction work of the school calls for the expenditure of our
entire income received from student's fees, it follows that we are compelled, like
other schools, to seek other sources of income for meeting unusual expenses.

Under the stress of immediate necessity, we have recently completed and
occupied an extension to our former building, costing approximately $300,000.
This work was undertaken in the belief that the necessary amount would be
contributed by the alumni and friends of the College. Up to the present time,
only about one-half of the amount has been subscribed, and we present a special
appeal for contributions to this cause.


There are also a number of ways in which comparatively small contributions
will be immediately productive of great good in specific directions, and several
of these are discussed below.


The library facilities required by men engaged in advanced studies are neces-
sarily much more extensive than those now provided by the College. The re-
search work in which such men will engage will call for a full supply of works
of reference, not only in pharmaceutical subjects, but in the sciences contribu-
tory to pharmacy. Generous friends of the College, and one such in particular,
have made frequent and extensive contributions to the Library, but it is highly
desirable that an endowment be established that will yield a permanent annual
fund of $500 for such a purpose.


The College, thanks to the generosity of the late Mr. Edward Kemp, possesses
a splendid working equipment of physical apparatus, suitable for the ordinary
purposes of pharmaceutical education. The advanced work of graduate students
will require not only extensive additions, but continuous expenditures for new
designs in order to keep pace with discovery and improvement.

An endowment of from $5,000 to $10,000 would admirably meet this demand.


With the exception of the National Museum at Washington, there is no ex-
tensive pharmaceutical or materia medica museum in this country. Small
museums exist in Philadelphia, Detroit, Cincinnati, at the New York Botanical
Garden and elsewhere, but nowhere is there a museum proper comparable with
those in London and Berlin. Civic pride, if no other consideration, should suffice
to secure the establishment in New York City of a museum proportionate with
the importance of the city as the port of entry for more than three-fourths of
the drugs received into the United States. There are, hov/ever, other considera-
tions of far greater importance. Scarcely a week passes without more than one
inquiry from importers, brokers or merchants, and even from the City and Federal
Departments, for unobtainable information concerning commercial articles of
this class.

There should be some institution to which such inquirers could turn with
reasonable certainty of an accurate reply. Furthermore, the ambition to supply
Doctors of Pharmacy who are competent to meet all demands made upon them,
even for the discovery of desired unknown facts, renders it imperative that a
storehouse of materials for investigation should be available. The ideal location
for such a museum is with the department of pharmacy of a strong and active

Such a museum involves more than a mere collection of labeled articles in
cases. It calls for a comprehensive plan providing for future accessions, and
for investigating the utility of new products. This calls for a curator with an
encyclopedic knowledge of the subject, and qualified to pursue original researches.


Such an institution, thus equipped, could provide a continuous supply of original
contributions in economic botany, connected upon the one side with sources of
sound scientific information and authentication, and upon the other with the
material welfare of our people.

A more creditable and permanent monument to its donor could scarcely be
conceived. To establish such a museum, and also to provide properly for its
care and maintenance, would require from $100,000 to $150,000.


The establishment of a number of lecture courses to be served by specialists
in their respective subjects is an essential requisite in the work of the final years
of an advanced course. Perhaps the most important of such subjects is the
history of chemistry and pharmacy. The provision of even a short series of
lectures would do much to point the way to investigation in the light of former

Those desiring to contribute toward any of the purposes named, or others in
which they may be interested, will upon request be supplied with a form which
may be used for the purpose.
