MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar; GONZALEZ ATA, Amelie  y  MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco. Pharmacy specialist Manuel Serafin Jonhson Sarralde. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.2, pp.329-344. ISSN 0034-7515.

Dr Manuel Serafin Johnson Larralde became professor at the University of Havana and began performing his profession right after graduating as Doctor of Pharmacy in 1883. This article presented the main data on his student life in that institution, which required a lot of efforts and perseverance since he was an orphan and did not have enough financial resources to pay the fees. It also provided details of his academic life at the University where one may see that he had to ask for permissions several times to travel to other countries because of health problems. Reference was made to his outstanding performance as the owner of a drugstore that became one of the most famous thanks to the quality of service rendered there. Johnson Larralde could guarantee the university studies of his five children who became pharmacists (4 of them) and continued the tenacious and devoted work of their father in this specialty. Taking into account his legacy in the university education and in the field of pharmacy, he deserves to hold very special place in the history of pharmacy in Cuba.
