Summary
The Greater Philadelphia Committee for Medical-Pharmaceutical Sciences (GPCMPS) was established by The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in 1963, and the Committee held its first meeting on Aril 18, 1963. Members of the pharmaceutical and medical fields in the Philadelphia area formed the GPCMPS in response to the 1962 Drug Amendments of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Its “purpose [was] a broad concern for medical-pharmaceutical research, in all of its phases, and for all related matters that affect the health of the American people.” In 1988, the Greater Philadelphia Committee for Medical-Pharmaceutical Sciences was disbanded because recent attempts to redefine and revitalize the committee had failed and because other organizations largely fulfilled the goals and purposes of the original committee. The Records of the Greater Philadelphia Committee for Medical-Pharmaceutical Sciences document the activities of the committee through meeting minutes and correspondence from 1969 until 1984. Researchers should note that information about its first five years, 1963 to 1968, is not present in this collection, and neither is information about its disbanding in 1988. Please the Related Materials note for links to the collections holding these materials. Researchers should also note that there are gaps in the correspondence, namely for the years 1970 and 1971; and that meeting minutes for some later years (1979 through 1984) are sparse
