The American Medical Association and the Pharmacopoeia of the United States of America (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The American Medical Association and the Pharmacopoeia of the United States of America Dr. Squibb began by giving a brief history of the origin of the United States Pharmacopoeia, from which it appeared that it originated in this State, chieﬂy through the efforts of Dr. Lyman Spalding, of the N. Y. County Medical Society, in 1817, and first came into actual existence in 1820, chieﬂy through the efforts of Drs. Thomas T. Hewson, Franklin Bache and George B. Wood, of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This College had proposed a U. S. Pharmacopoeia as early as 1787, but a Committee, to which the subject was referred, do not appear to have accomplished anything of practical value. The Pharmacopoeia of 1820 was the authorized work of 9. Convention which met in Washington, the first of a series of decennial conventions which havé' met for the purpose of revising the Pharmacopoeia ever since that time, namely, in 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860 and 1870. And a similar convention is provided for, to meet in 1880. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
