Summary:
The collection documents Parke-Davis and Company, one of the most important and oldest pharmaceutical firms in America.
Scope and Contents:
The collection documents Parke, Davis and Company, one of America's oldest and largest drug makers. Parke, Davis had the first research laboratory in the American pharmaceutical industry. The company played a major role in the development of some of the principle new drugs of the twentieth century and pioneered in the field of drug standardization. They were one of the first American firms to produce antitoxins, hormones, and other biologicals. They introduced new and important drugs such as adrenalin, dilantin, chlorenpleniol, and other antibiotics. They also did important research on vitamins, disinfectants, and pencillin.

The collection contains complete documentaion of all the research activities done, including research laboratory notes, correspondence, and published papers. The collection also contains corporate, financial, advertising and sales materials, photographs, and audiovisual materials. The collection is important for those researchers interested in the history of public health, the history of biologicals, pharmaceutical manufacturing and business history.

Biographical / Historical:
Parke-Davis and Company traces it's origins to Samuel Pearce Duffield (1833-1916), a physician and pharmacist. Duffield was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and his family moved to Detroit when he was an infant. Duffield graduated from the University of Michigan in 1854 and he attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, latter leaving for Germany where he studied chemistry and sought treatment for his eyesight. He subsequently earned a Doctor of Philosophy from Ludwig University at Giessen in Germany. Duffield returned to Detroit in 1858 and established a retail drugstore with a strong interest in manufacturing pharmaceuticals. Duffield sought financial partners for his retail and manufacturing venture with A.L. Patrick and Francis C. Conant. Both men retracted their investments and Duffield met Hervey Coke Parke (1927-1899), a native of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

Duffield and Parke formed a formal partnership in 1866. George S. Davis, a third partner and traveling salesman previously with Farrand, Sheley and Company, was added 1867. Duffield withdrew in 1869. Augustus F. Jennings joined the company as a partner to head manufacturing. The company became known as Duffield, Parke, Davis, & Jennings Company. Duffield withdrew in 1869 and the name Parke, Davis & Company was adopted in 1871. The company incorporated in 1875 and began planning world-wide scientific expeditions to discover new vegetable drugs such as Guarana, Bearsfoot, Eucalyptus Globulus, and Coca. The company first showed a profit in 1876, and the first dividend paid to shareholders in 1878 and dividends paid until mid-1960s. Research was a major activity of the company. Due to a weakening financial position, the company became susceptible to take-over, and was purchased by Warner-Lambert in 1970. Warner Lambert, was then acquired by Pfizer in 2000. In 2007, Pfizer closed its research facilities in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

University of California San Francisco

Drug Industry Documents was created by the University of California San Francisco Library in collaboration with faculty members C. Seth Landefeld, MD and Michael Steinman, MD. Originally established to house documents from an off-label marketing lawsuit against Parke-Davis (United States of America ex rel. David Franklin vs. Parke-Davis), the archive has grown to include documents from additional sources illustrating how the pharmaceutical industry, academic journals and institutions, continuing medical education organizations and regulatory/funding agencies operate in ways that are detrimental to public health.

"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from [February] 1923 to [the end of October] 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites."

Date:

Scope and Contents:
- The first of a series of four inventory books, in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected or acquired in several cities throughout Mesopotamia and Persia in 1923 and 1924.
- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 1 to 2,032, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; sketches; a storage box letter code; references to specific museum institutions, collectors, and antique dealers; physical descriptions; a dinasty and reign attribution; currency prices in Indian Rupee and in British Pound Sterling; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, photographic prints, sketchbooks, and paper squeezes) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- Handwritten caption, in pencil (probably later addition), on inside of front cover reads: "Herzfeld Coll."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-89 reads, "Inventory of objects in Herzfeld Collection, Nos. 1-2032, most with sketch, description, place of acquisition, price and provenance. There are some cross-references to sketchbooks and, in some cases, a note of disposition."
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks; Inventory of Objects in Herzfeld Collection (N-89)
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Ledgers were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks, 1904-1946, 1957, n.d.) for 131 notebooks, including four ledgers and eight travel journals. Upton has given this ledger an accession number, N-89, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

Scope and Contents:
- The second of a series of four inventory books, in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected or acquired in several cities throughout Mesopotamia and Persia in 1923 and 1924.
- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 1 to 1,864, and from 2,885 to 2,980, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; sketches; a storage box letter code; references to collectors, and antique dealers; physical descriptions; a dinasty and reign attribution; currency price in Indian Rupee; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, sketchbooks) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- "The content of ledger N-90 may tentatively be summarized into two subdivisions: 1) inventory numbers 1 to 1864, are a duplication of ledger N-89, and appear to be following a long series of entries entered in that ledger with much less handwritten annotations. As well, approximately 35 inventory numbers display different descriptive information from ledger N-89 to ledger N-90; 2) inventory numbers 2885 to 2980, which do not carry any dates, are a continuation of ledger N-91. The series seem to cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Harsin, Saweh, Nahavand and Tepe Giyan, as well as acquiring stamp and cylinder seals in Tehran, Kermanshah, and Baghdad." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Archives cataloger]
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-90 reads, "Inventory of Herzfeld's Collection. Nos.1-1864 are, in general, a duplication of the entries in N-89, except for the following: entries 105-120 differ from those in N-89; entry 786 is a stone statuette, in N-89 it is a bronze lamp, each missing in the other volume; 3 unnumbered bowls between entries 1543-44 in N-89 are not in N-90. Also included in N-90 are entries 2885-2980, mostly objects from Nihavand and Harsin."
