On Saturday, April 20, 2019, in Peoria, Illinois, friends and family of Richard H. Bogard will gather in celebration of his life. Dick was a dedicated member of the AIHP, joining in 1954. Born into a pharmacy family, he brought generosity and the insights of a practicing community pharmacist to AIHP annual meetings for decades. Dick died on November 30, 2018, at age 92. 

A servant to his profession, Bogard served organized pharmacy in several capacities including a term as president of the Illinois Pharmacists Association.  Dick was a vocal supporter of the Institute and its work.  In 1983, he wrote a piece encouraging Illinois pharmacists to join AIHP stating, “History is one of the most important decision-making tools we have.”  We encourage you to take a moment and read about the life of this remarkable pharmacist in his full obituary.

Actively engaged in preserving the documents of pharmacy's past and developing materials for understanding the future.
