Boericke & Tafel, (est. 1835), has been America’s leader in homeopathic medicine. Today the brand is best known for its premium cough syrups and topical gels / creams. (2017)
Urban Joseph Ehrhart emigrated from Alsace Lorraine to America at the age of two. The family settled in Chicago. Ehrhart's first job was as an errand boy for Boericke and Tafel. He worked his way up the ladder until he and a friend, Louis Karl, a graduate student pharmacist, decided to start their own business. In 1912 Ehrhart and Karl was first opened at 143 N. Wabash Avenue, the third floor of the Bishop building. When Bishop Fur needed the third floor, Ehrhart and Karl moved up to the seventh floor. Finally, the whole building was sold and the new owners tore it down. Ehrhart and Karl moved once again to 17 N. Wabash Avenue.
