Bill Boulden

A native of Wyoming, Bill Boulden began his career as a “soda jerk” at Weston County Drug. He graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in pharmacy in 1958 and began a fifty year career in rural health care. He owned the Weston County Drug and was also employed as dispensing pharmacist for Weston County Memorial Hospital and Manor. After selling the drug store, when many of his colleagues retired, Bill continued working as a substitute pharmacist in various Wyoming communities. He was recognized by the UW pharmacy department for 50 years of service to the profession in 2008 and he retired at age 75. Bill was civic minded and active in many community service organizations. He served on the University of Wyoming Alumni Association Board of Directors for several years and was proud to be the first of 3 generations to attend the University of Wyoming. The scholarship in his memory is for students studying pharmacy with the hope that small rural communities will be able to retain health care in Wyoming.
