SUMMER LABORATORY COURSES

These courses are designed to assist students who have failed at the spring
examinations to prepare for those of the fall, and to provide instruction for
special students in the use of the microscope, in the examination of drugs and
in pharmaceutical processes.

It will thus be seen that the work is not definitely fixed, but is made sufficiently
elastic to allow it to be adapted to the special needs of individuals.

In the laboratory work, apparatus and material will be furnished without
charge. All broken, lost, or injured apparatus must be either replaced, or the
expense of such injury be borne by the student.

acquaint him with the manufacture, differences and applications of bandaging and dressing mater-
ials, rubber sundries, glass and metal appliances, sutures and ligatures and the miscellaneous articles
stocked in the average retail pharmacy and intended for physician's or household use. The com-
plicated and specialized types of surgical instruments and appliances will not be considered.

COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 49

ENDOWMENTS

For one hundred 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 Anyiouncement, 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 Pharmacy.

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-
tion.

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 College.

Since the actual instruction work of the College calls for the expenditures of our
entire income received from students' 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.

LIBRARY MAINTENANCE

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-



50 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

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 contributory
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 desir-
able that an endowment be established that will yield a permanent annual fund
of $500 for such a purpose.

APPARATUS

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 discover^' 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, however, 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 inquiries 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 discover^' 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
university.

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 ency-
clopedic 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.



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 51

ADDITIONAL PROFESSORSHIPS

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
achievement.

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.
