In 1915, John Brinkley passed the Arkansas Eclectic Medical Board examination licensing him in the use of herbal remedies and other such medicine. After his license was revoked in Kansas for questionable practices, he moved to Texas and then set up two locations in Little Rock (Pulaski County). His career began to unravel when his male virility treatments were exposed as frauds in 1939. After several lawsuits in 1941, he filed for bankruptcy.
