Mercer University (College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences)

The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences had its beginnings in 1903 as an independent college in Atlanta and was first known as the Southern College of Pharmacy. The original charter was granted to Dr. R.C. Hood, Dr. Edgar A. Eberhart, and Dr. Hansell Crenshaw, all outstanding leaders in the fields of medicine and pharmacy.

In 1938 the College was transferred from private ownership to a Board of Trustees and was operated on this basis until July 1959. At that time, a merger with Mercer University was completed, and the Southern School of Pharmacy became a part of this Baptist-affiliated institution.

The School operated from the Walton Street building in downtown Atlanta for many years. In 1972, the Henry R. Herold Building was completed on Boulevard, across from the Georgia Baptist Medical Center, approximately one mile east of downtown. In 1991, the Southern School of Pharmacy relocated to the Cecil B. Day Campus of Mercer University, 15 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.
