J.S. Hoffman of Waterloo, Ontario opened his pharmacy on January 1, 1863. The business was purchased January 29, 1868 from J.S. Hoffman by Moses Springer and Simon Snyder. Both men were well-known in Waterloo's early history. Moses Springer was the first Reeve of the town of Waterloo in 1857, and was the town's first mayor in 1876. He later became an M.P.P. Simon Snyder was mayor of Waterloo in 1895-6, and was described as "a chemist and druggist, ... doing an extensive business in the town of Waterloo, where he carries a complete line of drugs, chemicals, druggists' sundries and pharmaceutical preparations." An advertisement in the Waterloo Chronicle dated Mar. 4, 1868 announced that Springer and Snyder were successors to J. S. Hoffman, and had purchased his stock "to be sold very cheap." Subsequent newspaper ads stated "Physicians' prescriptions and family receipts, carefully compounded, and all orders promptly attended to." On January 26, 1873, Simon Snyder purchased Moses Springer's share. On June 1, 1902, A. J. Roos purchased the business from Simon Snyder. At this time, Mr. Roos also had a drug store in Berlin. The Waterloo store was called the White Front Drug Store. In April, 1906, A. G. Haehnel bought the Waterloo store from Mr. Roos. Under A. G. Haehnel, the drug store was one of the first Rexall drug stores in Canada, beginning in the early 1920s. On May 1, 1907, Melvin J. Hahn started working for Mr. Haehnel. He later graduated from the Ontario College of Pharmacists in 1913, and was still working sixty-nine years later. On April 1st 1949, Melvin J. Hahn purchased the pharmacy from Mr. Haehnel. On Nov. 1st, 1968, Mr. Jack E. Hahn, son of Mr. M. J. Hahn, took over the business. The Hahn Pharmacy closed in 1986.

Nota geral

Pharmaceutical prescription books (1863-1928) have consecutive numbered entries, listing patient name, components of the pharmaceutical preparation and in some cases, the price. Two of the books (1901 to 1913) are hotel registers from the Zimmerman House, Waterloo, into which prescription sheets are glued over the registered guest lists. Subsequent books (1914 to 1928) are standard account books into which prescription slips are glued. Transfer cases (1928-1950) contain stacks of doctors' prescription slips, punched and mounted on two-ring holders. Until the "D" series was created in 1943, all prescriptions were included in these cases. After 1943, prescriptions for which dispensing fees were not charged remained in this group. "D" Series Transfer cases (1943-1950) contain stacks of prescription slips, punched and mounted on two-ring holders. These are doctors' prescriptions for which dispensing fees were charged. Record of Sales book for narcotics prescriptions (1924-1942) is a chronological listing of patients' names, doctors' and pharmacists' names, the profession and address of the patient, the drug name and date. This book is a companion to the "N" Series. (There is a reference to a subsequent book, which is not part of this collection.) "N" Series Transfer cases (1932-1951) contain stacks of prescription slips, punched and mounted on two-ring holders. These are doctors' prescriptions for narcotic medications.
