The College of Pharmacy Museum

The Carolina Pharmacy Museum, housed on the first floor of the College of Pharmacy building, Coker Life Sciences, is an affiliate of the South Carolina State Museum. After undergoing extensive renovations, the museum was officially dedicated on November 16th, 2017  to Dean Emeritus Julian H. Fincher and Dean Emeritus Randall C. Rowen and the students, faculty and loyal supporters who made the pharmacy museum possible.

Pharmacy Artifacts

Pharmacy artifacts, prescription labels and books and many other artifacts you will find in our museum were generously donated by James M. Smith and Charles R. Yandell in our early endeavours and remain focal points in the museum today. The remaining donations were retrieved from storage, or have been graciously donated since the opening of our pharmacy museum that now houses over 2,000 pharmacy artifacts. The College of Pharmacy Museum curator and faculty member, Kathy Quarles Moore, recruited 3 students who were passionate about pharmacy history to help catalog and assemble artifacts. A South Carolina College of Pharmacy student of Kathy Quarles Moore’s, Amy Yanicak, helped assemble artifacts, and was vital to the opening of the museum. After her, two P4 students, Matthew Berry and Tyler Ford, helped maintain the artifacts, catalogue new artifacts, and present the museum to students, faculty and visitors. Currently, two P2 students, Hope Snell and Alexis Caronis, are helping to maintain the artifacts, catalogue new artifacts, and feature unique items that showcase the history of pharmacy monthly on our website. Some of our artifacts are available to view online in our gallery, or in person via a personal tour. To schedule a tour of the Carolina Pharmacy Museum, please email UofSCPharm Museum
