The Pharmacy Act 1852, 15 & 16 Vict. c.56, aimed to upgrade education for pharmacy and ensure that those practising as pharmaceutical chemists should possess a competent, practical knowledge of their subject. The Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain had been incorporated by royal charter in 1843 to regulate the profession and meetings were held in Scotland to discuss the adoption of the Act in Scotland. At the meeting held in Glasgow, Professor Frederick Penny of Anderson's University spoke approvingly of the plan, and the druggists of Glasgow decided to form themselves into a body for this purpose. The Glasgow Chemists' and Druggists' Association had as its object the study of the science of chemistry and other collateral sciences having a bearing on pharmacy. Membership was open to employers, assistants and apprentices connected with pharmacy, and to all interested in the advancement of the subject. Meetings were held fortnightly in Anderson's University building, papers were read and objects of interest exhibited. A library was maintained for the use of members.
