Robert Anthony Vauter was born 16 May 1936 in Forest City, Pennsylvania to Anthony and Frances (Skube) Vauter. In 1959, he graduated from Temple University's School of Pharmacy with a full five year course of study. After graduating, he served an apprenticeship in Forest City, became licensed, and then began his career in community pharmacy working in both small family stores and chain stores. In 1968, Vauter decided to join the emerging field of hospital pharmacy and sought a degree from St. Louis University in Missouri. In the early 1970s, he worked at Farview State Hospital, and designed and taught a course of study in psychopharmacology to psychiatric aids and nurses at the facility. After relocating to upstate New York in 1988, Vauter took a pharmacy position with the Department of Defense at Fort Drum. Following a ten year term there, he moved to the Clayton, North Carolina area, but worked part time in the pharmacy at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Smithfield before retiring in 2003. Vauter died 13 July 2007.
