Biographical Information

H. W Heine graduated from Purdue University's School of Pharmacy in 1913. After graduation he engaged in the retail side of Pharmacy at Wells-Yeager-Best Company of Lafayette. He was in charge of the prescription department of that store for some time, and he also planned the windows for the company. Mr. Heine also took an active part in the Pharmaceutical affairs of the state of Indiana. He joined the staff of Purdue University in the Pharmacy School in 1928. He was in charge of the dispensatory in the Purdue School of Pharmacy. The dispensatory compounded the prescriptions written by the University physicians for the students. The doctors gave the prescriptions to the students and advised them that they could be filled without cost at the School of Pharmacy. This health service was financed by a fee charged to every student upon registering in the university. The fee was $4.00 per annum. Out of the fee two physicians and a nurse were employed who gave medical attention to the students when needed. A portion of the fee was spent for medicine to be dispensed on the prescriptions for students. Mr. Heine was hired to fill the prescriptions written by the university physicians. He also supervised the work done by the senior students as prescription practice. Mr. Heine also devoted his time to the course in Commercial Pharmacy. He had about fourteen years of experience in retail stores. Since he had also devoted much time to window displays, he also gave an actual laboratory course in sign painting and window decorating.
