    Obituary
    • PROF. WM. PROCTOR, JR., Vice President and Professor of Theoretical and Practical Pharmacy of the Philadelphia Colledge of Pharmacy, died suddenly of heart disease at about a quarter past 12, Tuesday morning, Feb 10th, at his residence, 902 Lombard street, Philadelphia, pa.

      Professor Proctor was born in Baltimore May 10th, 1817, came to Philadelphia at the age of 13, and entered the drug store of Mr. Henry M. Zollickoffer, where he remained thirteen years. He graduated at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacv in 1837. The subject of his thesis was " Lobelia Inflata." The results of his investigation were given in a carefullv written paper and published in the American Journal of Pharmacy for that year. He was elected a member of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy May 18, 1840, and n member of the Board of Trustees in 1841. In 1843 he opened the drug store on his own account at the southwest corner of Ninth and Lombard, where he continued to carry on business until his death. The William Proctor, Jr., Vice President and Professor of Theoretical and Practical Pharmacy of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, died suddenly of heart disease at about a quarter past 12, Tuesday morning, Feb. roth, at his residence, 902 Lombard street, Philadelphia, Pa. 94 Reviews and Hook Notices. Chair of Pharmacy was created in 1846, and he was unanimously elected to fill it, and continued to occupy it until 1867, when he resigned and was succeeded by Prof. Maisch. On the death of Prof. Parrish, last year, he was solicited to fill the chair of Pharmacy, thus made vacant, and accepted the position.

      Prof. Proctor was an indefatigable worker. While carrying on his drug-store and his course of lectures, he also found time to contribute numerous articles to the American Journal of Pharmacy, of which periodical in 1848 he was made assistant editor to Dr. Joseph Carson.

      In 1850, July, he became sole editor, and so continued until April, 1871, when he resigned. The mere record of his contributions to the Journal during this time, fills nine closelv printed columns of the index. In addition to all this, in 1848-9, he edited a revised edition of Mohr and Redwoods Pharmacy ; increasing the bulk of the volume abont one-third, by his contributions relative to American pharmacy, and making it a standard text-book for Pharmacists.

      He lectured at the College of Pharmacy Monday evening, returned home apparently in his usual health and spirits, and sat talking with his wife until nearly 12 o'clock, when he retired and was shortly after found to be dead.

      His funeral was largely attended, and delegations were present from New York, Baltimore, and New Jersey. He was buried at Mt. Holly, N. J., Monday evening. The class of the college in a body reviewed the remains of their beloved teacher, and followed the funeral to the Market street wharf. The remains bore a natural expression and were surrounded by floral offerings supplied by the students.

      He was an honorary member of the Philosophical Society of Philadelphia, Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, British Pharmaceutical Conference, Sociedad de Farmacia National, Argentia, Colegio de Farmaceuticas, Madrid, Societe de Pharmacie de Paris, Austrian Apothecaries Society, Maryland College of Pharmacy, College of Pharmacy of the City of New York, etc.,
