Charles Hamner was born in 1935 in Schuyler, Virginia—the home of 1970s television family, the Waltons. His childhood was not unlike that of the Waltons, the storyline having been developed by his cousin, writer Earl Hamner Jr. Hamner studied animal husbandry at Virginia Tech and went on to earn three degrees from the University of Georgia, a Masters of Arts in chemistry and doctorate degrees in veterinary medicine and biochemistry. From 1964 to 1988 he worked at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, teaching surgery and biochemistry. Hamner retired from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center in 2002 but shortly thereafter was appointed Chairman of the Board of the Chemical Institute for Industrial Toxicology, renamed the Hamner Institutes for Health Sciences in his honor. The Hamner, as it is known, guides innovative chemical and pharmaceutical development with an emphasis on product safety. He has been awarded three honorarydoctorates, including one from Northern Ireland's University of Ulster, the citation there recognizing his boosts to the pharmaceutical industry in that region.
