Charles H. Stocking
Regents' Proceedings 611

Charles Howard Stocking, a native of Stockbridge, Michigan, and a graduate of this University with the degrees Ph.C. (1907), B.S. (1909), and M.S. (1925), has for the past thirty-two years been a valued and respected member of the faculty of the University of Michigan.

From 1947 to 1949 he was Acting Director of the College of Pharmacy, and from that time until 1951 Professor of Pharmacy and Dean of the College of Pharmacy. A man of ready sympathy and understanding, and with long experience in pharmaceutical manufacture and pharmaceutical education,

Dean Stocking enjoys a wide acquaintance and many friendships throughout the profession, especially among the graduates of our College of Pharmacy who have profited both by his instruction and by his counsel. His 1952 election to the presidency of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy in 1932-33 is evidence of the estimation in which his colleagues have held him in pharmaceutical education, and his many writings reflect his constant activity in this field.

As Dean Stocking has attained his seventieth birthday on August 27, 1952, and has therefore become eligible for retirement as of that date under the Bylaws of the University, the Regents of the University of Michigan hereby extend to him their sincere thanks for his long-continued, conscientious, and able service in the posts which he has occupied, and confer upon him the title Professor Emeritus of Pharmacy and Dean Emeritus of the College of Pharmacy, inviting him to avail himself of all the courtesies customarily extended to emeritus members of the faculty.
