In the second-floor elevator lobby, there is a typical prescription counter from the 1920s and '30s. This case came from the Ray Drug Store in Ray, Arizona. As the open-pit copper mine there expanded and began to encroach on Ray, the whole town moved about two miles, at which time the owner of the pharmacy donated his old prescription counter to the college. On the front of the counter are a number of over-the-counter remedies available at the time.
The back side is where the pharmacist would fill prescriptions with everything he might need right at hand: balances, a glass tile to mix ointments and powders on, prescription books, and a typewriter. The drawers were probably filled with bottles of various sizes and other paraphernalia.
