Arthur J. Kinsman, who was born in New York, founded the Purepac concern in 1929 and built it into a nationally known pharmaceutical house. He retired in 1959 and was a veteran of WWI. He died in New York on June 12, 1964.
Mr. Kinsman, who lived in Essex House in New York and Beverly Hills, Calif., was long a trustee of Columbia University's College of Pharmacy. In 1944 he gave the school a fully equipped apothecary's shop like those of the eighteen‐eighties, complete with prescription counter, ointment jugs, iron mortars and shelves of the patent medicines of the era. It was installed as a permanent teaching exhibit.
