This collection contains a single record book from an undisclosed pharmacy.
This collection consists of one item, which is contained in one file.
Scope and Contents
This collection contains an account book from an unknown pharmacy containing the names of the city elites including Albert Pike, S. H. Tucker, Judge Thomas Johnson, Charles P. Bertrand, Dr. W. W. Adams, Frederick W. Trapnall, and Dr. Matthew Cunningham.
At some point in the past, U. S. Congressman David D. Terry of Little Rock came into possession of a 19th Century account book. The unnamed pharmacy was obviously popular with the city elite, as there were accounts for such people as Albert Pike, S. H. Tucker, Judge Thomas Johnson, Charles P. Bertrand, Dr. W. W. Adams, Frederick W. Trapnall, and Dr. Matthew Cunningham. Years included are 1849-1850. Eventually, Terry or his family gave the book to the Little Rock Public Library. A thorough check for internal evidence failed to discover the origin of the account book.
