MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar; GONZALEZ ATA, Amelié  and  MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco. School of Pharmacy in the university setting from 1925 to 1933. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.171-187. ISSN 0034-7515.

The main aspects of the School of Pharmacy of the University of Havana from 1925 to 1933 were presented. They were influenced by the conditions imposed to the country and to the institution by a dictatorial government that ruled from May 1925 to August 1933. Throughout these years, the academic and teaching performance of the University of Havana was seriously hit because the first five academic courses took place in an environment full of tensions, protests, police repression and irregularities and the University was closed for the first time in December 1930. Although this measure was eliminated in May, 1932, the new academic year had not begun at the end of 1933 yet. The example of the university leader Antonio Guiteras Holmes was underlined in this paper. After finishing his Pharmacy studies in 1927, he continued struggling against the tyranny and was called to be part of the temporary revolutionary government, also known as the one hundred day government, because it only lasted from September 1933 to the early days of January, 1934.

Keywords : school of pharmacy; pharmacy studies; Antonio Guiteras.
