Research Facts
Parke-Davis and Company was founded in Detroit, Michigan by Dr. Samuel P. Duffield, a physician and pharmacist. In 1860 Dr. Duffield owned a small drugstore at the corner of Gratiot and Woodward Avenues. Dr. Duffield made a variety of pharmaceutical preparations, including Hoffman’s anodyne and mercurial ointment, but was overwhelmed by the operations of the business.
In 1871 the company sent expeditions to Central and South America and the West Indies in search of medicinal plants. The company produced an herbal laxative drug Cascara found from Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest

"PHYSICIAN'S OATH // I swear by Apollo the physician, by Aesculapius, Hygeia, and // Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to // keep according to my ability and my judgement the following Oath: // To consider dear to me as my parents him who taught me this art; // to live in common with him and if necessary to share my goods with // him; to look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them // this art if they desire without fee or written promise; to impart // to my sons and the sons of the master who taught me and the // disciples who have enrolled themselves and have agreed to the // rules of the profession, but to these alone, the precepts and the // instruction. I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients // according to my ability and my judgement and never do harm to // anyone. To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug, nor give // advices which may cause death. Nore will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion. But I will preserve the purity of my // life and my heart. I will not cut for stone, even for patients in // whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be // performed by practioners (specialists in this art). In every house // where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping // myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction, and // especially from the pleasure of love with women or with men, be // they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the // exercise of my profession or outside of my profession or in daily // Commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will // keep secret and will never reveal. If I keep this oath faithfully, // may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and // in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse // be my lot" // HIPPOCRATES // DECEMBER 1953 JANUARY 1954 FEBRUARY 1954"

Research Facts
Dr. William D. Hay, graduated from Queen’s University: Arts 1914, MA 1918; Faculty of Meds Class of 1921; worked at Queen’s University / Kingston General Hospital as a Pathologist; co-founder of the Kingston Blood Bank, 1942; retired 1957.
From 1941-1970, J. R. Geigy A. G., the Swiss pharmaceutical and chemical company headquartered in Basel worked with leading designers to create a visual vocabulary known as the “Geigy style”. This ‘anonymous’ language was often (not exclusively) represented by white space, the use of Akzidenz-Grotesk type, photographs, stylized graphics or drawings, color contrasts and the use of a grid. Graphic designs created for pharmaceutical and medical supplies packaging.
The Declaration of Geneva (Physician's Oath) was adopted by the General Assembly of the World Medical Association at Geneva in 1948, amended in 1968, 1983, 1994 and editorially revised in 2005 and 2006. It is a declaration of a physician's dedication to the humanitarian goals of medicine, a declaration that was especially important in view of the medical crimes which had just been committed in Nazi Germany. The Declaration of Geneva was intended as a revision of the Hippocratic Oath to a formulation of that oath's moral truths that could be comprehended and acknowledged in a modern way.
