MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar  and  MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco. Pharmacy studies in Cuba in the period of 1920-1921. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2012, vol.46, n.3, pp.359-374. ISSN 0034-7515.

After the end of the second US military intervention in 1909, the Cuban government made efforts to exhibit an image of republican rebirth and, as a result, the first university statutes, which were drafted without the supervision of either colonial or interventionist governments, were put into effect in the 1910-1911 academic course. Since then, the University carried out its activities in a quite normal environment until 1921, although it also was an exact reflection of the corruption existing in almost every political and administrative sphere of the country. The worsening of this situation and the outrageous attitude of many university professors and authorities made the Cuban students be more aware of this state of affairs and unleashed a crisis that fully changed the academic life of the University of Havana. A brief presentation about the events occurred in this academic institution, particularly in the School of Pharmacy, during the 1910-1911 and 1920-1921 courses was made in this article.
