Abstract:
The Beeman Chemical Company was organized in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1888 by Edwin E. Beeman, a druggist and medical practitioner specializing in digestive disorders. Beeman discovered that pepsin, an extract from the stomach of hogs, relieved indigestion. Beeman added pepsin to chewing gum in 1890. The company manufactured and sold pepsin, "Beeman's Pepsin Gum," and other confections, and was sold to American Chicle Co. in 1899. The collection consists of articles of incorporation, bylaws, minutes of meetings, treasurer's reports, and other documents.
