FILMING AT THE SODERLUND PHARMACY MUSEUM
PBS created a documentary about the life of Hubert H. Humphrey, one of Minnesota's favorite sons. Humphrey grew up in a drugstore in the first part of the 20th century and eventually became a pharmacist just like his father.
His life was shaped by listening to his father and others from the small rural town in North Dakota discuss politics.
Hubert H. Humphrey was a US senator and the vice president and a civil rights leader. He was also a pharmacist so in a way Humphrey has a connection to the Soderlund Pharmacy Museum.
Mick Caouette and his production crew as well as the cast of characters put on quite a show during their filming at Soderlund Village Drug. We were honoured that they chose to use the Soderlund Pharmacy Museum as the background for their film!
The name of the film is "The Art of the Possible"
Hubert Humphrey was a Pharmacist
Vice President Humphrey graduated from Capitol College of Pharmacy in Denver in 1933 and the University of Minnesota 1939. He worked as a pharmacist with the Humphrey Drug Co. in South Dakota from 1933 to 1937 before entering full-time politics.
