One of 116 specimens of official pharmaceutical preparations donated by Parke, Davis and Company in 1920 for the pharmacy exhibits. These specimens illustrated a variety of solid and liquid “dosage forms” from tablets, gelatin capsules, and pills, to lotions, elixirs, and fluid extracts. Each dosage form was represented by two specimens and accompanied in the exhibit cases with photographs of the manufacturing processes at Parke, Davis and Company of Detroit, Michigan. The Medicinal Forms exhibit was updated in 1935 and again in 1947.
