File: Department of Pharmacy

Scope and Content

A chair in pharmacy had been established by the University in 1946 with Harry Brindle (1889-1976) as the first incumbent. The Department was later headed by Kenneth Bullock (1901-1985) and P. H. Elworthy (1933-1995).

The file includes papers on the Department's development plan including accommodation, particularly the memorandum, "Request for allocation of accommodation in the Medical School" (1970) and in correspondence on the conversion of the old Medical School to provide suitable accommodation (1972). There is material on teaching hours, conditions for technical staff and various departmental research projects, particularly Harold Jackson's research into the pharmacological aspects of chemotherapy. There is also correspondence with the Pharmaceutical Society concerning recognition of the Department's degree courses for professional accreditation.
