In Memory of Dr. Robert J. Schlembach

Dear alumni and friends of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences,

On Saturday, December 16, the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science lost a dear friend, and our community has lost a compassionate pharmacist. Dr. Robert J. Schlembach, affectionately known to us as “Doc,” passed away at the age of 93.

Doc’s journey at The University of Toledo began in the 1940s, when he was a pharmacy student. He went on to serve for 40 years as a faculty member and an interim dean of the College, officially retiring in 1999 at the age of 78.

Doc’s influence will live on in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences through scholarships and programs in his name, and through the ongoing achievements of those whose lives he touched. His commitment to pharmacy education was witnessed and felt by generations of pharmacy students at The University of Toledo and beyond.

From my first meeting with him in Wolfe Hall to the last College event that he attended, the annual scholarship dinner, Doc consistently showed his great concern for the profession and for students. Students who received his scholarships or benefited from the Dr. Robert & Mary Schlembach Leadership Fund (members of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Lambda Kappa Pharmaceutical Fraternity, College Ambassadors and Phi Lambda Sigma) will forever bear his brand.

Sincerely,

Johnnie L. Early II, PhD, RPh, Fellow NPhA
