Founders Day

A celebration of our rich history and bright future.

2016 Founders Day Celebration

On November 11, 1864, at 7:30 p.m., St. Louis College of Pharmacy was founded in the hall of the St. Louis Medical College. Eugene Massot, an apothecary originally from Kentucky, along with four other medical colleagues, went about drafting a charter, constitution, and bylaws. More than 150 years later, the STLCOP community celebrates Founders Day to reflect on all those who have contributed to the College's legacy of educating the best pharmacists in the United States.

Reflecting On Our Rich History

Since the College's founding, STLCOP has been educating future pharmacy innovators and practitioners who are impacting health care and society locally, nationally and globally. We owe our success to the leaders and innovators who have helped shape the College over the years. During Founders Day activities, we recognize those who came before and paved the way for the success of the College and its students.
