The professionalization of pharmacy began in St. Louis as early as 1864 with establishment of the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, the oldest pharmaceutical school west of the Mississippi River. Adolph Pfeiffer flourished as a professional pharmacist. In about 1879, Pfeiffer opened his pharmacy in St. Louis at the corner of Broadway and Salisbury Street. He named his new company the S. Pfeiffer Manufacturing Company after his wife, Sadie. At about the time Adolph Pfeiffer was establishing his pharmaceutical company, there were 86 manufacturers in St. Louis producing patent medicines valued at approximately $4 million annually.
