About Samuel W. Melendy

Samuel W. Melendy was a staunch supporter of the College of Pharmacy in its early years. As a member of the Minnesota State Pharmaceutical Association, he played an active role in promoting the establishment of a School of Pharmacy at the University, which opened under Dean Frederick Wulling in 1882. In the early years of the school, Melendy was a frequent visitor who often times lent equipment to the school.

Before Melendy's death in 1916, he discussed with Dean Wulling his will to leave a sum of money to the College for graduate scholarships and fellowships. His wish also included money for an annual lectureship that would emphasize the scientific, ethical and professional aspects of pharmacy. After his death, Melendy's widow endowed funds for both of his wishes. The first Melendy Lecture was given in 1943 by Dean Frederick J. Wulling. Many distinguished local and national figures have participated since. Many of these lectures have been past deans, alumni and have also included the former Vice President of the United States, Hubert H. Humphrey.
