Stan Robson

The scholarship is funded through a generous donation from Dr Graeme Robson in honour of his late father, Stanley George Robson, a much-loved pharmacist from Hamilton, Western Victoria, where he ran pharmacies from 1935 until his death in 1995.

You can read about Stan Robson's life from his early days as an apprentice pharmacist, brilliant student and first professional in his family to his struggles during the Great Depression and eventual success as a rural pharmacist.
