Pharmacy Shelves | Lykos Pharmacy

Lykos Pharmacy was opened in 1960 by Nicholas C. Lykos, the first independent retail pharmacy in the neighborhood. Known to the community as “Doc,” Nick was dedicated to providing high-quality customer service. After graduating from the “A” course at Baltimore Polytechnic High School and University of Maryland School of Pharmacy with honors, he served in the military.

Nick was a forerunner in the field. Lykos Pharmacy was the first retail pharmacy in the state of Maryland to provide computerized prescription service. He was actively involved with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy as a clinical professor and was instrumental in creating the PharmD program, which eventually propelled the school to the top 10 in the country. He served two terms as Director of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, and was named Small Business Man of the Year. Nick’s wife Dorothy, a former x-ray technician, who originally hailed from Philadelphia, worked alongside with him for years. She, like her husband, Nick, were active members of the community.

To commemorate Nick’s memory, his family established the Nicholas C. Lykos Scholarship in Community Pharmacy at University of Maryland.
