The Baltimore General Dispensary

Our friend, Johns Hopkins (the person, not the institution) has been creating a five-minute educational and entertaining video series about Baltimore over the past year for Baltimore Heritage. The videos have covered subjects as diverse as Formstone, Lumbee Indian Heritage and the Ministry of Brewing. 

Baltimore Heritage just posted a video near and dear to our hearts here at MedChi. It’s all about the dispensary movement, prevalent in the 1800’s and into the early 1900’s. In reviewing the biographies of our members during that period, many of them did a stint at the dispensaries in Baltimore.
