Family Planning Pills

National Museum of American History
The popularity of “the Pill” created a new market for pharmaceutical companies. For the first time, healthy women would be taking medication for an extended period of time. Pill manufacturers developed unique packaging in order to distinguish their product from those of their competitors and build brand loyalty. Packaging design often incorporated a “memory aid” to assist women in tracking their daily pill regimen, as well as styled cases to allow pills to be discreetly carried in bags and purses. The National Museum of American History’s Division of Medicine and Science’s collection of oral contraceptives illustrates some of the changes that the packaging and marketing of the Pill underwent from its inception in 1960 to the present.

Schering AG of Berlin, Germany, manufactured these oral contraceptives during the late 20th century. The logo of the “blue lady” taking her pill adorned all U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) oral contraceptive packages that were distributed worldwide to family planning programs. Compared to other oral contraceptives of the time, these USAID pills are packaged very simply, lacking any kind of discreet container or memory aid. The "blue lady" packaging was introduced in the late 1960s in order to standardize packaging, provide three months supply in one package, and to provide adequate protection for the pills in tropical conditions. This packet contains three cycles of 28 pills, with 21 white hormonal tablets and 7 tablets of iron supplements.

Planning for Operation Reindeer

Smithsonian Archives - History Div
The reindeer were a gift for Alaska's admittance as the 49th state (which became official in 1959) to the United States of America. The Operation was a joint effort between the Smithsonian, State of Alaska, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Consolidated Freightways, Alaska Air Command, Alaska Steamship Co., Alaska Railroad, and Garrison Fast Freight. The reindeer and caribou all arrived safely to Washington, D.C., on December 11, 1958, just in time to participate in that year's "Pageant of Peace" on the National Mall.

Operation Reindeer, the plan to transfer 14 reindeer and 1 caribou to the National Zoological Park from Alaska in 1958, gets underway as motor carrier executives and animal experts set plans. Edwin L. Isenberger (left), Operations Engineer for Consolidated Freightways Inc., discusses the novel move with the Smithsonian National Zoological Park's Senior Keeper Charles Thomas and Associate Director J. Lear Grimmer. To set plans for the trip, the handlers stopped to visit at the Seattle Zoo at the reindeer exhibition to see "Pepper Pot."
