The College of Notre Dame broke ground on a 25,000-square-foot building to house its new School of Pharmacy on Friday, a project that will allow the school to expand from 70 to 300 students. Notre Dame opened the school last fall in response to studies that showed an underserved demand for pharmacy education in Maryland. The co-educational college, the first of its kind on a traditionally all-women's campus, chose its initial class of 70 from 500 applicants but has received 950 applications for the 70 spots in next year's class.

So the Baltimore native made a practical decision to go back to school and train for a career that seemed recession-proof. What he didn't realize is that he'd also get to be a pioneer. When Donohue and 69 others start courses at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland today, they will become the first class of the first school of pharmacy at an American women's college.

In 1840, Baltimore had 77 pharmacies, many of them run by physicians employing apprentices. To educate these young men, the pharmacists founded the Maryland College of Pharmacy, fourth in the nation, which was chartered by the legislature in January 1841 and began class in a single room with one instructor and six students, three of whom went on to graduate in June 1842. The first American professorship in the theory and practice of pharmacy was established there in 1844.After the 1846-7 school year, the school went dormant, only to be reborn in 1856 with 20 students, three professors and a scholarly journal.

It's a new year, but Elmer Klavens marks it in the old manner. He gets up each day, and he gets himself to work. You can find him several days a week at the Chestnut Pharmacy, on 36th Street in Hampden. A few years ago, Klavens did the math and figured he had filled about 1 million prescriptions over his lifetime. He has been a pharmacist for three-quarters of a century. As he goes to work this week, he is 94 years old. He has three children who marvel at their father. There is the musician, Clay; the schoolteacher, Bobbie; and the optometrist, Andy.
