Get an inside look at the lives of military and civilian pharmacists during wartime! Pharmacy in World War II is a comprehensive history of American pharmacy, both in the military and on the home front, from 1941 to 1945. The book provides a unique insight into the profession, the practice, and its practitioners through the memories of those who served as pharmacist mates, corpsmen, or civilian pharmacists. Through accounts recorded in publications, stored in archives, or told first-hand, you’ll learn about the fight to establish an Army Pharmacy Corps, the work of the Selective Service committees to preserve an adequate pool of pharmacists for civilian practice, the bond drives that would buy hospital airplanes and trains, and a great deal more. Pharmacy in World War II also looks at the organizational, economic, educational, professional, and societal issues that molded pharmacy during a watershed in modern American history. Author Dennis B. Worthen, editor-in-chief of Haworth’s Pharmaceutical Heritage book series, compiled a database of more than 11,000 pharmacists, pharmacy students, and veterans in pharmacy school during wartime as part of the “Memories Project” that recalls the activities of the professional, trade, and educational institutions of pharmacy, their goals and development, and their interactions, agreements, and differences. The book examines the fight for an Army Pharmacy Corps, shortages and rationing on the home front, manpower shortages, the impact of the Selective Service, and the prevalent attitude in the military that pharmacy was a business, not a learned profession, and that pharmaceutical services could be learned with 90 days of training. Pharmacy in World War II includes memories of: pharmacy in the pre-World War II years pharmacy education the Selective Service the drugstore’s role in the war effort the Pharmacy Corps returning veterans The book also includes photographs and images as well as appendices listing colleges and schools of pharmacy, Selective Service pharmacy advisory committees, pharmacy organizations and leaders, extracts from Army medical departments supply catalogs, and pharmacists and pharmacy students who died in the war. Pharmacy in World War II is an invaluable document for pharmacy students, practitioners, and educators, and for students of American history.

Drogen im Dritten Reich – »dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild« (Hans Mommsen) Über Drogen im Dritten Reich ist bislang wenig bekannt. Norman Ohler geht den Tätern von damals buchstäblich unter die Haut und schaut direkt in ihre Blutbahnen hinein. Arisch rein ging es darin nicht zu, sondern chemisch deutsch – und ziemlich toxisch. Wo die Ideologie für Fanatismus und »Endsieg« nicht mehr ausreichte, wurde hemmungslos nachgeholfen, während man offiziell eine strikte Politik der »Rauschgiftbekämpfung« betrieb. Als Deutschland 1940 Frankreich überfiel, standen die Soldaten der Wehrmacht unter 35 Millionen Dosierungen Pervitin. Das Präparat – heute als Crystal Meth bekannt – war damals in jeder Apotheke erhältlich, machte den Blitzkrieg erst möglich und wurde zur Volksdroge im NS-Staat. Auch der vermeintliche Abstinenzler Hitler griff gerne zur pharmakologischen Stimulanz: Als er im Winter 1944 seine letzte Offensive befehligte, kannte er längst keine nüchternen Tage mehr. Schier pausenlos erhielt er von seinem Leibarzt Theo Morell verschiedenste Dopingmittel, dubiose Hormonpräparate und auch harte Drogen gespritzt. Nur so konnte der Diktator seinen Wahn bis zum Schluss aufrechterhalten. Ohler hat bislang gesperrte Materialien ausgewertet, mit Zeitzeugen, Militärhistorikern und Medizinern gesprochen. Entstanden ist ein erschütterndes, faktengenaues Buch. Der totale Rausch wurde von dem bedeutenden Historiker Hans Mommsen begleitet, der das Nachwort beisteuert. Sein Fazit: »Dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild.«

I gave considerable thought as to what the title of my autobiography should be. There was never any question that a portion of the title would read, "The Life Experiences of a World War II, Korea, and Vietnam ______? American Army Veteran", but how would I be described in view of the many "race" descriptions the U.S. Census has used for the black citizens since the first census in 1790? Should I be described as a Colored, Black, Mulatto, Quadroon, Octoroon, African American, or Negro American Army Veterans? I chose BLACK as being the most descriptive term and, as James Brown said, I'm black and I'm proud! My life experiences include a few race-related incidents that occurred before, during and after my military service. Each incident could have greatly influenced my overall attitude towards life, in general, and in an adverse manner, but fortunately did not. Q. Jarone Batson

Well Satisfied with My Position offers a first-person account of army life during the Civil War’ s Peninsula Campaign and Battle of Fredericksburg. Spencer Bonsall, who joined the 81st Pennsylvania Infantry as a hospital steward, kept a journal from March 1862 until March 1863, when he abruptly ceased writing. Editors Michael A. Flannery and Katherine H. Oomens place his experiences in the context of the field of Civil War medicine and continue his story in an epilogue. Trained as a druggist when he was in his early twenties, Bonsall traveled the world, spent eight years on a tea plantation in India, and settled in Philadelphia, where he worked in the city surveyor’ s office. But in March 1862, when he was in his mid-forties, the lure of serving his country on the battlefield led Bonsall to join the 81st Pennsylvania Infantry as a hospital steward. Bonsall enjoyed his life with the Union army at first, comparing bivouacking in the woods to merely picnicking on a grand scale. “ We are about as jolly a set of old bachelors as can be found in Virginia,” Bonsall wrote. But his first taste of the aftermath of battle at Fair Oaks and the Seven Days’ Battles in Virginia changed his mind about the joys of soldiering— though he never lost his zeal for the Union cause. Bonsall details the camp life of a soldier from firsthand experience, outlines the engagements of the 81st, and traces the Battle of Fredericksburg and the Peninsula Campaign. He records facts not available elsewhere about camp conditions, attitudes toward Union generals and Confederate soldiers, and troop movements. From the end of June to late October 1862, Bonsall’ s illness kept him from writing in his journal. He picked up the record again in December 1862, just before the Battle of Fredericksburg, Virginia, in which the Union suffered a staggering 10,200 casualties and the 81st Pennsylvania lost more than half its men. He vividly describes the bloody aftermath. Bonsall’ s horse was shot out from underneath him at the battle of Gettysburg, injuring him seriously and ending his military career. Although he was listed as “ sick in hospital” on the regiment’ s muster rolls, he was labeled a deserter in the U.S. Army records. Indeed, after recovery from his injuries, Bonsall walked away from the army to resume life in Philadelphia with his wife and child. Published for the first time, Bonsall’ s journal offers an unusually personal glimpse into the circumstances and motives of a man physically ruined by the war. Seventeen illustrations, including some drawn by Bonsall himself, help bring this narrative to life.

In 1834, Robert Hurd and his family settled on a parcel of land in what is now present-day Arlington. A devout Presbyterian, Hurd named the town after his favorite church hymn. In the late 1800s, the small town of Arlington saw progress in the form of two railroads. The mid-1930s were especially prosperous, as the town enjoyed a bustling business center that included six grocery stores. The famous Arlington Homecoming Festival began in 1946 and ran for 50 years. In the 1990s, George Herbert Bush and William Jefferson Clinton made presidential campaign stops here, making history in this quiet, small town. The heart of this town can be found in its citizens, their churches, schools, and businesses, and their community park. Current and former residents alike share fond memories of their small-town lifestyle and are proud to be Arlingtonians.

Trace the development of a pioneering college of pharmacy! This fascinating book recounts the history of the first college of pharmacy west of the Alleghenies. Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City tells the tale from its beginnings as the Cincinnati College of Pharmacy in 1850 to its status as a college of the University of Cincinnati and into the twenty-first century. Through the specific history of the school, its founders, and its dedicated faculty and students, the remarkable progress of pharmacy as a profession is mirrored here. In the mid-nineteenth century, most aspiring pharmacists in the United States had to apprentice themselves to practicing druggists. Though a formal school had already been established in Philadelphia, followed by schools in the other large eastern cities, young men in the West who wanted to learn the profession faced great difficulties. Few pharmacists had any formal training in chemistry, anatomy, or other sciences, and they could not teach what they did not themselves know. Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City discusses the fascinating facts of pharmacy history, including: the influence of German settlers on pharmacy standards the reasons nineteenth-century women faced less opposition in becoming pharmacists than in becoming doctors how admissions standards changed as high school diplomas and college degrees became more widespread how colleges of pharmacy met the emergency demands of World War I and World War II the effects of high technology on pharmacy education Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City offers a fresh look at the history of pharmacy education in the United States as well as in Cincinnati. Well researched and entertainingly written, this book will help you appreciate the rapid changes in the profession of pharmacy.
