Paul John Hanzlik was born in Shueyville, Iowa, on July 24, 1885. He obtained his Ph.G. (Graduate in Pharmacy) degree from the State University of Iowa in 1902. In 1908 he obtained an A.B. and a Ph.C. (Pharmaceutical Chemist) degree from the University of Illinois. His A.M. (1911) and M.D. (1912) degrees were received from Cleveland's Western Reserve University. After graduation from medical school, Dr. Hanzlik served briefly as a demonstrator in pharmacology at Western Reserve University, and then spent a period of study abroad, at the Pharmacological Institute and Physico-Chemical-Biological Institute at the University of Vienna. Upon his return, Dr. Hanzlik became associated with the Stanford medical school, first as an instructor (1913-1915), then as an associate instructor (1915-1917), assistant professor (1917-1920) and associate professor (1920-1921). In 1921 he was named professor of pharmacology at Stanford, a position he held until his retirement in 1950.
