Abstract

In this paper we offer an interpretation of the social and institutional context that promoted the development and evolution of the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Our interest is in defining the historical circumstances that led to the geographic concentration of the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our focus is both geographic and institutional as we seek to understand the forces behind geographic localization and the ways in which geographic localization may contribute to the advancement of science and to the evolution of industries. In this paper, we describe the general development of the industry in the Mid-Atlantic region of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Copyright 1996 by Oxford University Press.
