Research Facts
Over the years, Boericke and Tafel maintained branches in many cities across the United States. They were staffed by experienced pharmacists, many of whom had worked with Boericke and Tafel "since boyhood."
In about 1890, William Boericke formed a partnership with E. W. Runyon, in San Francisco, and formed the company of Boericke and Runyon.
Sometime during the 1940's Boericke and Runyon were sold to Humphreys Pharmacal, and became a division of that company.
The label on the bottle dates to 1910 - 1930 but the plastic bottle it is affixed to dates to 1950 - 1960.
