Research Facts
Some years ago the business was extended into Canada and, in 1905. a large and handsomely equipped laboratory was built at Perth, Ontario, from which place all the varied line of products now manufacture by the Philadelphia laboratory is offered to the medic-, profession and drug trade of Canada. In November 1906 the interests in the United States and Canada were incorporated, the former under the name of Henry K. Wampole & Co.. Incorporated, and the later under the name of Henry K. Wampole & Co.. Limited. The management of the laboratory work in both establishments is under the supervision of graduates of the Philadelphia College c Pharmacy.
Henry K. Wampole (1849 – 1906)
"[A] nice piece of Canadian pharmaceutical history representing the last generation of proprietary medicines to legally contain opium derivatives."
