ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Page 54 of 70. Prophecy on page 53 reads, "From a love of mixing things in Chemistry Fritz Quilling has developed the art of throwing drugs of every kind together to make a medicine which is warranted to kill or cure. He acts as his own salesman, travelling [sic] through the country, advertising extensively and occasionally selling a box of his famous medicine." For Fred Albert Quilling, the prophecy couldn't have been more accurate. After high school, he apprenticed with a local drugstore and graduated from Northwestern University in 1910. In the 1920s, he returned to Menomonie, where he and partner Louis Ehrhard operated a drugstore at 300 Main St. for many years. A father of five and grandfather of eleven, he died in Rochester, Minnesota, in 1963. Information about Fred Albert Quilling has been researched through local newspaper articles and his obituary.
