Curio: 1932 Map of Medicinal Plants


This 1932 Medicinal Plant Map was published by the National Wholesale Druggists' Association for a campaign called Pharmacy Week. At the time, pharmacists were experts about plants and how to mix them for health purposes. Today, pharmacists work mostly with synthetic drugs made in laboratories. Click on the map to be taken to it's original location in David Rumsey's map archive where you can zoom in to see the intricate details.
