“Duncan Brothers, Homoeopathic Pharmacists, Publishers and Booksellers, Nos 133 and 135 Wabash Avenue. A house which has deservedly maintained the leading position in the homoeopathic medical circles of the West is that of Messrs Duncan Brothers of Nos 133 and 135 Wabash Avenue. Both as regards enterprise and energy as well as the most careful attention to the progress of medical science and the care bestowed upon the exactitude and purity of all pharmaceutical preparations produced by them or passing through their hands, they have ever held a representative position and retained an ever widening and superior class of patronage. Mr D Duncan, the present proprietor of this handsome and completely stocked establishment, was born in Wyoming County, New York State, though his family moved West while he was yet a child. In early life he was employed in various drug houses acquiring a thorough and practical knowledge of the pharmaceutical profession in its broadest aspect. In 1874 in co-partnership with his brother under the existing name and style, Mr Duncan embarked in business at No 67 Washington Street, continuing there until 1877 when they removed to Nos 131 and 133 Clark Street where they remained until 1884. The steady expansion of their trade and the development of an important publishing and printing business necessitated removal to the still more commodious and advantageously located premises Nos 133 and 135 Wabash Avenue, where is exhibited the choicest and largest stock of pharmaceutical goods in the line of homoeopathy to be found in Chicago; likewise a complete library of textbooks and medical treatises in the wide field of physiological and medical science. In February 1885 Mr D Duncan succeeded to the proprietorship of the entire business and still continues it identically as before under the original and honored name and style of Duncan Brothers. He gives that close personal attention to every department of his business so satisfactory to customers and beneficial to their interests and carries a stock as exceptional for the purity and strength of all ingredients as for its wide range of completeness. He also keeps the latest issues of standard medical works and has developed a wide reputation as a skillful and enterprising publisher of books, monograph, leaflets etc and as printer of all descriptions of fine commercial work. A specialty for which his typographical department has long been famous is the prompt turning out of every description of professional printing including labels, formulas, prescription blanks, etc circulars and directions for the use of medicines and medical appliances. Personally Mr Duncan is universally popular and respected throughout professional and business circles and has manifested executive abilities and pharmaceutical skill and enterprise of the highest order. He has now been a permanent resident of Chicago for upwards of twenty years and fully merits the large measure of success which has attended his well directed efforts.” FROM: “Origin, Growth and Usefulness of THE CHICAGO Board of Trade, New York: Historical Publishing Co: 1885-86”
