Historical Note

The Pharmaceutical Association of the University of Texas (PAUT), was organized on October 2, 1896 by the members of the Class of 1897. Their object was to bring members of the Pharmaceutical Department closer together and to elevate pharmacy. Well-known women suffragist Minnie Fisher Cunningham (1882-1964) became her alma mater’s sole female to earn a Graduate of Pharmacy Degree in 1901. During her senior year, Miss Fisher served as Secretary and Treasurer of the PAUT. Shortly after her graduation, she found employment in Huntsville, Texas however, her wages were half of her male co-workers. She later cited this injustice as motivation in elevating the status of women.
