In 2012 we celebrated the Journal’s 100th anniversary. From its humble beginnings to becoming one of pharmacy's leading journals, we commemorate its editors (past and present) with this unique booklet. James Hartley Beal, the first editor of the Journal, described its mission in 1912, “The American Pharmaceutical Association does not exist for the purpose of producing this publication, but the latter has been brought into existence to serve the necessities of the Association.”
