The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and other pharmaceutical organizations celebrated the recent Bicentennial in various forms. One means of marking this historic occasion was to initiate a compilation of the history of pharmaceutical education, including histories of colleges and schools of pharmacy. With the encouragement of James T. Doluisio, Dean of the College of Pharmacy, Dean Emeritus Henry M. Burlage and historian Margot E. Beutler undertook the task of recording the events leading to the development of the College of Pharmacy of The University of Texas at Austin. Pharmacy's Foundation in Texas traces the development of the College of Pharmacy from its humble beginnings in the "Old Red" basement at Galveston to the modern, multicampus complex in Austin and San Antonio. Factual detail and research, woven with wit and style into the experiences of the College, create a realistic approach to make this book interesting reading as well as a reference source for every Texas pharmacist.
