Did you know that Andrew Craigie was the United States' first Apothecary General?
Did you know that there used to be an office called "Apothecary General"?
I didn't. Thanks, biography of Longfellow!*
*I'm reading Calhoun's biography of HWLongfellow for class. Longfellow's rich father-in-law bought the house on Brattle St. in Cambridge from Craigie's widow.
