Lucas Richert

George Urdang Chair in the History of Pharmacy

Welcome to this site. My name is Lucas Richert and I’m a writer and historian. Previously, I worked at the University of Strathclyde and the University of Saskatchewan. Over the past few years I have lived in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Saskatoon, and now Madison. If you’re wondering about why this site is actually called ‘Run For Your Life!’ it’s a reference to my first ever publication.

I’m pretty busy these days and so not writing as many blog posts as in years past. But I still think it’s useful to maintain this blog, even though I’m not tending to it as lovingly as I might. Please nose around and I hope you enjoy.

My areas of expertise
  • history of intoxicants
  • history of north america
