Loyd E. Harris

Loyd E. Harris , a 1920, 1922 and 1924 graduate of The University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy, had a distinguished career in pharmacy. He served as a professor of pharmacy (1926-37) and later as Dean (1963-70) of The University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy. He played a key role role in the implementation of the "five year" program in pharmacy, as well as the decision to move the college to the Health Sciences Center. Dr. Harris served as Dean Emeritus until his death in September 2000. Dean Harris also was recognized for the development of continuing pharmaceutical education in Oklahoma. Through his generosity and love for our college, the Loyd E. Harris endowed lectureship was established. Widely recognized experts are invited to the college to present to the students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends current information and ideas that shape the profession of pharmacy.

Dean Harris also endowed a scholarship for the college, establishing the Loyd and Maurine Harris Scholarship in Pharmaceutical Sciences. This scholarship will help graduate students to become leaders in pharmacy for years to come.
