Pharmacist to the Nation a History of Walgreen Co.

R. R. Donnelley & Sons. 1989

Charles Walgreen's role as pharmacist to the nation began in 1893 when he landed his first job at Rosenfeld's in Chicago. In 1898 Walgreen enlisted in the army to help his country in the war against Spain. He contracted malaria and yellow fever in Cuba, and considerably debilitated returned home to Chicago and another job at a pharmacy. He applied himself strenuously to his job to make enough for a down-payment to buy the pharmacy on Chicago's South side.
