Research Facts
The Florence Nightingale Pledge was composed by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at the old Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893. The pledge was created as an adaptation of the doctor's Hippocratic Oath. It was revised and slightly changed in 1935.
This pledge was recited at graduation ceremonies until the 1970s, when it was either changed or dropped completely, as nursing was an "autonomous profession" and the final line about loyalty to the physician did not match what nursing was truly striving towards, being loyalty to the patient, even in the face of opposition from the physician.

Boericke & Tafel. The Herb Museum.
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.
