College of Pharmacy History Book
Dispensing Knowledge was written by Dr. Mary MacCara to mark the centennial of the College of Pharmacy. The story starts just prior to the College’s establishment as the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacy in 1911. It continues through the College’s years as the Maritime College of Pharmacy and to current time as the College of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health Professions, Dalhousie University. There are ten chapters, with a chapter devoted to the timeframe of each of the three Deans of the Maritime College of Pharmacy and the five Directors of the Dalhousie College of Pharmacy. College programs and coursework, research, continuing education and student involvements are all highlighted. Personal reflections about the time of their leadership at the College, written by Directors Gordon Duff, David Yung, Frank Chandler and Rita Caldwell are included, as are memories written by over ninety graduates and faculty members. It’s a very attractive book with over 150 photographs. (212 pages, 11 X 8.5 paperback, 100 lb coated paper, full colour)
