The series consists of School of Pharmacy student records dating from the period ca. 1887-1917. Relating to individual students, the records take the form of files containing high school transcripts, applications to the School of Pharmacy, lab fees (bills and receipts), and matriculation reports. Also common in the files are correspondence pertaining to enrollment, employment opportunities, and letters of recommendation.
In most instances, student files have been retained in their original envelopes. These envelopes feature the student's name and place of residence, years of enrollment at the School of Pharmacy, and the year of graduation. In cases where the envelopes were badly deteriorated, the records contained therein were transferred to folders and a photocopy of the information on the envelope included.
