Torald H. Sollman
Pharmacologist, Educator
Posthumous Inductee


The name Dr. Torald Sollmann is synonymous with American pharmacology. As a researcher and professor at Western Reserve University for almost 50 years, Sollmann authored the first English- language pharmacology lab textbook. Its successor, "A Manual of Pharmacology," became the standard text of its time.

Born in Germany, Sollmann immigrated to Canton in 1887. He earned his pharmacist's license at 17, becoming the youngest person ever to do so in Ohio. Sollmann earned his medical degree from the medical department of WRU in 1896. He remained at the school, starting as a demonstrator in physiology and lecturer in pharmacology and eventually working as its dean from 1928 until retirement in 1944.
