Research Facts
Finley Acker & Co., makers of Ackers Hygeia, were large grocery stores in Philadelphia from 1882 until 1920. They specialized in teas, coffees, candies, cigars, and various food items including those given the name "Hygeia": flour, buckwheat, and "Snowdrift" (a cereal).
Ackers Weekly was a publication sent out by the store every week to advertise products.
Finley Acker & Co. became known and loved for their delivery system, reasonable prices, and quality of goods.
The name "Hygeia" comes from the Greek goddess of health, and daughter of Asklepios, god of medicine. She is often depicted holding or feeding a snake, the symbol of Asklepios. In Greek, "Hygeia" means "soundness" or "wholeness", and health and hygiene were based around keeping the body sound and whole.

Research Facts
In the early 20th century, Antiphlogistine was one of the old remedies for boils, poison ivy and chest congestion, first used in 1893 and created by Denver Chemical of New York.
On the United States Patent and Trademark site, the second version of the product was apparently first marketed in 1948. Somehow Church & Dwight owned the trademark, but it died, and was revived in 2010 by W. F. Young, Incorporated, Longmeadow, Mass.
Dr. John Wallace (Jack) McDougall (1912-1999). Opened general practice at 35 Garden Street Brockville, across the street from the St. Vincent de Paul Hospital in July 1940 and retired in 1985. Graduated from Queen’s University Faculty of Medicine in 1937 and completed his internship in Buffalo NY, married and returned to Brockville in 1940.
