Dr. Bope reviews his experiences of being reared on a farm during the 1930’s. He describes the events that led him and his twin brother to major in pharmacy. After military service and graduate work, Dr. Bope returned to OSU in 1948. A brief history of the College of Pharmacy is included. Before the College of Pharmacy was established, pharmacy was three lectures a week in the Department of Chemistry. As more students enrolled, it became a 1-year program and then a 2-year program. After the College of Pharmacy was established, the length of the major was 3 years, then 4 years, and in 1948 5 years. As secretary of the College, Dr. Bope established the faculty advising system. The employment of pharmacy graduates has changed from owning a retail business to being a pharmacist in a large organization. With a change in deans, the emphasis for faculty work was changed to research and graduate work. The College tried separating the lecture and laboratory into separate courses. The importance of scholarship funds is discussed. Since universities do not have adequate research monies, Dr. Bope believes that industry should provide support for research.
