** Beginning in 1987, the date of the award coincided with the year in which the award was given. Prior to 1987, the award had been given for an honoree for the previous year. In 1986, the award was presented to the 1985 Pharmacist of the Year; in 1987, the award was presented to the 1987 Pharmacist of the Year. Therefore, there was no award for a 1986 Pharmacist of the Year.
