"He was a change agent and an educational pioneer," said Jeffrey Baldwin, Pharm.D., professor and vice chairman for education in the department of pharmacy practice. Dr. Baldwin worked under Dr. Haskell from 1973 to 1983.

"He was a bold administrator and leader of the college during a period filled with change," said Edward "Ted" Roche, Ph.D., associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, who worked under Dr. Haskell during his entire tenure as dean. "In many ways, he set the stage for the success we have enjoyed for last 30 years."

Before he was dean, Dr. Haskell served as vice chancellor of the medical unit at the University of Tennessee, Memphis.
