both Dr. Urdang and Or. Sonnedecker speak of him in warm terms

able young pharmacists- Mr# Ernst Stieb from the University of
Toronto and Mr, Glen Moir from the University of British Columbia will take up advanced graduate study in the history of pharmacy at
Wisconsin within the next few weeks. • . . So you are already
demonstrating that Canadian pharmacy has the men, the ideas, and
the perspective to draw a useful stimulus from its historic past. I
feel sure that in retrospect this meeting, in its own way, will be
historic as well as historical. lf

, PERFUMES,

AND TH5IR HISTORY AS A HOBBY

AIPH member Frank J. Steele makes a hobby of the history
of cosmetcis and perfumes and of making such preparations from
both old and new formulas. He has found twenty-twoformulas for
Florida V7ater, the earliest one in Manuels- Ror et, Nove au Manuel
Complet du Parfumeur, 1895« Does anyone know of an earlier
formula?
Mr. Steele writes: nIt would be stimulating to correspond
with other members who have unusual books on cosmetics and
and
perfumes, or who would be interested in exchanging ideas

ERROR IN DATING GRAVES* PAINTING

OF OLD MAINS DRUGSTORE

The popular reproduction of an oil painting we distributed
to members last Christmas, under the title "Ye Olde Time Drugge
"
Shoppe, was incorrectly dated. The artist, Abbott Fuller Graves,
was born April 15, 1859, in Massachusetts.
While the correct date
has not yet come to light, it does seem unlikely that the artist put
brush to canvas before he was born! Compliments go to Dr. George
D. 3eal, research director of the Mellon Institute of Industrial
Research and good friend of the AIHP, for his alertness in detecting
the error.

Rufus A# Lyman, who became Honorary President of the AJIJHJP«
at our 1955 meeting. The third person to be thus honored,
Dr. Lyman was one of the founders of the American Institute of the
History of Pharmacy and since then has been an exponent of its
objectives* and of the teaching of history of pharmacy in colleges of
pharmacy. He is dean-emeritus of the University of Nebraska
College of Pharmacy, retiring editor of the American Journal of
Pharmaceutical Education, and has been a commanding figure in
American pharmaceutical education for nearly half a century.
