To mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the "Ole Miss" School of Pharmacy, noted contributors have gathered to spotlight its unique background. "Pharmacy Education at the University of Mississippi: Sketches, Highlights, and Memories" reviews the trials and triumphs in the fascinating history of the school, exploring a tumultuous century that included wars, social upheaval, curricular revolution, and amazing successes. This surprising - and engagingly written - book details the school's transformation from a second-rate institution to an internationally recognized programme. Beyond being the first public university chartered in the state, the University of Mississippi has a long history of innovative thinking. Near the beginning of the twentieth century, the Mississippi State legislature recognized the need to adequately oversee those individuals who would dispense medicines. So, in 1908, the University of Mississippi established its pharmaceutical department and set on a course of improving educational standards for students of pharmacy. "Pharmacy Education at the University of Mississippi" presents the highlights of events, challenges, and successes from the visionary founding of the school by a man not yet 30 years old on to its becoming a leading school of pharmacy in the United States. The book includes nearly three dozen photographs. "Pharmacy Education at the University of Mississippi" tells stories and personal insights of: the founding of the school by a young pharmacy clerk; the school's struggles for funding - and respect; transformation from a second-rate institution to an internationally recognized program; pharmacy education in the twenty-first century; program development through the years; and women in pharmacy and at the university. "Pharmacy Education at the University of Mississippi" is a revealing view of history for pharmacy school libraries, alumni of "Ole Miss", pharmacy school faculty and students, and historians of all types.
