Granberg Receives Weaver Medal of Honor


Morrow, Grandberg, Hoag

There was standing room only at the recent presentation of the Lawrence C. and Delores M. Weaver Medal of Honor to C. Boyd Granberg, dean and professor emeritus of pharmacy at Drake.

Granberg joined the Drake faculty in 1950 as associate professor of pharmacy and served as dean of Drake's College of Pharmacy from 1977 until his retirement in 1984.

During the award presentation, Rick Morrow, interim dean of the college, detailed Granberg's devotion to Drake and his many contributions to pharmacy at the state and national level. He also stated that Granberg was a noted author and editor in his field.

"As an author, his most noted work was the book titled Remarkable Pharmacists, a title I always perceived as ironic since Boyd Granberg was unquestionably the most remarkable pharmacist I've ever known," Morrow said.

Following the presentation, Granberg gave a lecture titled "Pharmacy and Me: A 50-Year Journey."
