  • Papers of Donald E. Francke, a distinquished American pharmacist and editor of several publications. As chief pharmacist for several large university hospital pharmacies and editor and publisher of several pharmacy journals, Francke was concerned with drug nomenclature, professional ethics, and drug information. He participated in many national and international conferences and study missions. From 1944 to 1963, Francke worked to improve pharmacy school curricula and the image and education of hospital pharmacists. Active in the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists (ASHP), the American Pharmaceutical Association(APhA), and the Federation Internationale Pharmacutique (FIP), Francke advocated establishing international ties among pharmacists. The collection includes correspondence, conference materials from European meetings and study missions, extensive materials on FIP conferences, 1953-1977, including copies of papers given at the Press and Documentation section meetings, speeches, research files, and writings.
