Biographical Note

Henry Matthew Burlage (1897-1978), earned an A.B. degree in chemistry in 1919 from Indiana University. From 1919 to 1921 he pursued his studies in chemistry at Harvard University, but left due to financial difficulties and began working in the laboratory of Charles B. Jordan, Dean of the College of Pharmacy at Purdue University. There he earned further degrees in pharmacy in 1924. He then accepted appointment as instructor in pharmacy at the University of Washington in Seattle, and he earned his PhD degree in pharmacy there in 1928. He then became associate professor of drug analysis at Oregon State College and Inspector for the Oregon State Board of Pharmacy. From 1929 to 1931 he served as associate professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at Purdue before being appointed to a full professorship at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He taught there for sixteen years.

Dr. Burlage moved to Texas to serve as Dean of the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin from 1947 to 1962. He continued to serve as Professor of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Chemistry until 1970. As Dean he initiated the formation of the Pharmaceutical Foundation, the Pharmacy Extension Service, the Visiting Lecture Series, and the Texas Journal of Pharmacy. He was a member of a large number of professional and honorary societies, and also served as President of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and Treasurer of the Texas Pharmaceutical Association. Though he retired as Professor emeritus in 1971, Dr. Burlage remained active and produced two major publications during the last years of his life, "The Four Walls of Pharmacy" (written with his son Robb) and "Pharmacy's Foundation in Texas", a history of the College of Pharmacy written with Margot E. Buetler.

Dean Burlage died at his home in Austin on October 6, 1978, survived by his wife Alleda and son Robb.
