From a Boone County Historical Society release:

"Lloyd, considered one of the most important pharmacists of his time, grew up in Boone County and founded the 19th century firm of Lloyd Brothers, Pharmacists, Inc.

Professor Lloyd authored a number of local-description novels about the Northern Kentucky area including "Stringtown on the Pike" and "Warwick of the Knobs." He also wrote a highly acclaimed science fiction work entitled "Etidorhpa," as well as numerous pharmacopeia publications.

Professor Lloyd will be with us by special arrangement with the Lloyd Library & Museum in Cincinnati."
