Joseph Jacobs was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1859, the son of Gabriel and Ernestine Heyman Jacobs. The family soon thereafter moved to Jefferson, Georgia. Gabriel Jacobs joined the 116th Georgia Infantry and fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Following the war the family moved to Athens, Georgia where Joseph apprenticed himself to Dr. Crawford Williamson Long, the first physician to use ether as an anaesthetic. Jacobs later attended the University of Georgia and the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. In 1884, Jacobs moved to Atlanta where he established a chain of drug stores. It was at Joseph Jacobs' pharmacy where Coca-Cola was first served as a fountain drink. The collection consists of records from the Jacobs Pharmacy Company, articles collected and written by Joseph Jacobs, and correspondence. Arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically within each folder. Finding aid is available in the library.
