The first New Zealand journal devoted entirely to pharmacists was Sharland’s Journal which ran from 1892 to 1911. It was adopted by the Pharmacy Board as their official journal in 1899. In 1927, pharmacist C. B. McDougall wrote a letter to the Pharmaceutical Society Conference and argued that New Zealand pharmacists needed their own journal. McDougall and two others formed a committee and, with a bank overdraft guaranteed by the Pharmaceutical Society and the Chemists’ Defence Association, established the Pharmaceutical Journal of New Zealand. It was not until 1952 that the Pharmaceutical Society recognised the publication as its official journal.
