The following is an inventory list made of drugs housed in the drug room and various other sectors of the Oregon State Hospital as of June 30, 1931.  The list appears as part of a larger appraisal of hospital property that includes furniture and other materials.  The list transcribed below omits two columns, one of unit price and the other of total value of the quantities listed.  It is interesting to see somewhat traditional plant medicine (Marsh Mallow, Belladonna, Witch Hazel) mixed in with those more likely found in a hospital today (Morphine) and those that probably wouldn’t (Cocaine, Opium).
