Charles Schewene, Pharmacist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership.
Dr. Schewene became involved in his profession because he was interested in how things worked, which lead him to the field of science. He gravitated toward the pharmaceutical field, as it was an exciting and good area of science. In his academic pursuits, he first earned a Bachelor of Arts from Thomas More University in 1961 and earned a PhD in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin in 1967. He later received a Bachelor of Science in pharmacy from the University of the Sciences in 1973. Upon receiving a PhD, he spent a year as a postdoctoral research fellow at the California Institute of Technology.
Prior to retiring in 1997, Dr. Schewene worked as a pharmacist for Thrifty Corp./Rite Aid in Los Angeles, California. He started in this role in 1973. In addition to this position, he served as a research chemist at E.I. DuPont de Nemours. The highlight of Dr. Schewene’s career was his contributions to the problem known as the Goering-Schewene energy diagram. While it was a 50-year-old problem and well-known at the time, it was a non-classical ion problem that many people worked on. While he did not solve the problem, he did shed some light on the nature of the problem. As it turned out, there were two sides to the argument and one person drew attention to the fact that there was not enough evidence to support the claim of the nature of certain types of positive ions in organic chemistry. It turned out to be on the losing side and he kept using Dr. Schewene’s work as evidence for his side, which did not prove Dr. Schewene’s side but made his work well known.
