Edward Squibb endorses a check for $45.00.
Partly Printed Check endorsed: "E.R. Squibb" on verso, 7x2½. Brooklyn, 1870 February 5. Payable to Squibb for forty five dollars "for Printing", signed: "J. S. Prost" as Treasurer King County Medical Society. 2-cent revenue stamp affixed at upper left. In 1858, physician and pharmacist Edward R. Squibb (1819-1900) founded a chemical and pharmaceutical laboratory in Brooklyn. In 1892, the firm, which was dedicated to the production of consistently pure medications, became E.R. Squibb & Sons. Although he didn't live to see it, Squibb's lifelong crusade for safe, reliable pharmaceutical products became a reality with the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906, the year after his sons sold the firm. In 1989, Squibb, which had grown into a multinational operation, merged with Bristol-Myers. Today, Bristol-Myers Squibb carries 28 product lines with sales in the $20 billion range worldwide. Lightly creased. Lightly soiled. Pinhead-size holes at blank left. Bank cinching and straight pin stain at Payee line, all intact.
