University of the Pacific (Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy & Health Science)

A school of pharmacy at the University of the Pacific was first suggested to Mr. Jess Rudkin, Director of Development, by Mr. Jacob Rehfus, a former official of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. A year or so later, Dr. Robert Burns, President of the University of the Pacific, Dr. Lloyd Bertholf, Academic Vice President, and Mr. Rudkin agreed to discuss the project with a small group of community pharmacists. Dr. Emerson Cobb, Chairman of the Chemistry Department, was added to the group and asked to determine interest in the local pharmacy community. Included in the early discussions were Angelo Sanguinetti, Edna Gleason, and Leon Happell.

At the 1953 Convention of the California Pharmaceutical Association, John P. Creighton, President of the Association, formed a committee to survey the need for an additional school of pharmacy in California. By 1954, the committee determined that existing facilities in California could not be expanded to provide enough pharmacists in the following decade. The University of the Pacific was one of several educational institutions in northern California that seemed to have adequate physical facilities, staff, and interest in developing a school of pharmacy.
