Father Mollinger's Original Prescriptions were a selection of patent medicines, prepared by Alexander F. Sawhill of Allegheny, Pennsylvania, and sold under a trademark featuring Father Suitbert G. Mollinger. According to Sawhill's copy, he had been preparing the remedies on behalf of Father Mollinger for seven years, though the trademark was registered only after the father's passing. This was the first commercial exploitation of Mollinger's name and reputation as a healer, and the forerunner to the later Mollinger Medicine Co.
