Trace the development of a pioneering college of pharmacy!This fascinating book recounts the history of the first college of pharmacy west of the Alleghenies. Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City tells the tale from its beginnings as the Cincinnati College of Pharmacy in 1850 to its status as a college of the University of Cincinnati and into the twenty-first century. Through the specific history of the school, its founders, and its dedicated faculty and students, the remarkable progress of pharmacy as a profession is mirrored here.In the mid-nineteenth century, most aspiring pharmacists in the United States had to apprentice themselves to practicing druggists. Though a formal school had already been established in Philadelphia, followed by schools in the other large eastern cities, young men in the West who wanted to learn the profession faced great difficulties. Few pharmacists had any formal training in chemistry, anatomy, or other sciences, and they could not teach what they did not themselves know.Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City discusses the fascinating facts of pharmacy history, including: the influence of German settlers on pharmacy standards the reasons nineteenth-century women faced less opposition in becoming pharmacists than in becoming doctors how admissions standards changed as high school diplomas and college degrees became more widespread how colleges of pharmacy met the emergency demands of World War I and World War II the effects of high technology on pharmacy educationPharmaceutical Education in the Queen City offers a fresh look at the history of pharmacy education in the United States as well as in Cincinnati. Well researched and entertainingly written, this book will help you appreciate the rapid changes in the profession of pharmacy.
