August Vogeler was born in Germany in 1819 and came to America in 1840 where he established a drug business in Baltimore in 1845 with his son, Jerome I. Vogeler. A. Vogeler & Co. introduced a line of family medicines in 1871 including Dr. August Koenig’s Hamburger Drops, Koenig’s Breast-Tea and Koenig’s Plaster, all which originated in Germany. Charles A. Vogeler, son of August, joined the firm in 1874 and in 1877 Adolph C. Meyer who had been serving as a travelling salesman for Vogeler became a partner in the firm whose name changed to Vogeler, Meyer and Co. The firm name changed again in 1882 with the death of Charles Vogeler-known as A. C. Meyer and Company. From 1877 on the firm was owners of Dr. Bull’s Family Medicines (see separate monograph on John Bull) and the firm was still manufacturing Bull’s Cough Syrup in Baltimore as late as 1937.
