Oh good, tested drugs! Don’t worry, they’ve gotten all the kinks out.

From the Rochester newspaper:

(In 1862) A man named George Weber came to Rochester and started a drug store. One of his employees, Philip G. Heintz, later became a partner, and in 1908, the firm became Weber & Heintz.

In 1912, the company was reorganized and in 1916, the name was changed to Weber & Judd when C.M. (Cornelius) Judd became a partner.

The dates don’t line up with the matchbook. How old was Weber when the first changed its name? Hardly matters now; Hy-Vee bought the chain in 2019.
