1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Irvin Goodman HALL OF FAME on July 12, 2004
Format: Paperback
As a graduate of the U.C. College of Pharmacy, I found this book most interesting and memory jogging. It is a great undertaking that chronicals the history of the oldest school of pharmacy west of the Allegheny mountains. The important book took a massive amount of work to compile, with the help of scores of individuals who are credited in the book. The period from 1850 when Cincinnati College of Pharmacy was founded, through joining with U.C., to the offering of the Pharm D degree is covered. History is divided into chapters to show the earliest years (1850-1871) to the Fennel Years, depression and war years, to the 4 "Dean" years. A complete register of students by year and name, along with their degrees from 1873 to 2000 is provided !! It is fascinating to review how the practice of pharmacy has changed dramatically over this period and how the curriculum has been updated to meet the changes,challenges, and the needs of patients. 14 pages of detailed notes regarding the book are provided. Anyone believing that pharmacy is not a dynamic ever-changing profession will discover the truth in this volume. Most intersting is the chronicalling of pharmacy education during its infancy all the way to the 21st century. The University of Cincinnati periods are titled with the Deans' names: The Kowalewski Years, The Glasser Years, The Warner Years, and the new century with the Acosta years. There is a wealth of information in this book's 235 pages, along with some interesting pictures. They brought back memories to me personally, from the mid to late 50's, with Dean Joe teaching the freshmen "History of Pharmacy." Dean Joe personally interviewed each student prior to admission, and knew each student by name, and the pharmacy where he or she worked. This book is most informative, interesting, and well worth reading.

By A Customer on March 12, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This book is an institutional history of the College of Pharmacy of the University of Cincinnati prepared in commemoration of its 150th anniversary. Begun in 1850 as a private school of pharmacy under the sponsorship of the Cincinnati Pharmaceutical Association, the school remained independent until its merger with the University of Cincinnati in 1954. The book is divided into eight chapters, the first four of which deal with the independent school, and the last four (organized by College Dean) with its history after the merger. The book concludes with six appendices listing students, faculty, etc., a bibliography, and a section of notes. As is to be expected, the book deals largely with administration, faculty, and building changes, though the authors' also make some attempt to trace changes in the curriculum and to set their story within the context of the city's history and important developments in the history of pharmacy as a whole. Indeed, each chapter concludes with a time line, summarizing both local and national developments.
Though books of this type are seldom of interest to readers who are not among the faculty, students, or alumni of the school itself, they are of vital importance as the first stage of documentation for larger, more generalized histories. And, as any one who has ever worked on such a history knows, they involve an incredible amount of painstaking research to track down names and dates. The authors are to be congratulated on a job well done and the College of Pharmacy for its willingness to support this historical endeavor.
