Abstract The University sponsored School of Medicine was established in 1879 with a two-year medical curriculum. When the School of Medicine's first Dean resigned from the University in 1895 to focus on his medical practice, the School of Medicine was closed. It remained closed until 1890, when it reopened with a one-year curriculum. The School of Medicine returned to a two-year curriculum in 1896. In 1947, the North Carolina General Assembly appropriated funds for the construction of the North Carolina Memorial Hospital. The hospital (renamed in 1989 as UNC Hospitals) opened in 1952, making possible the expansion of the two-year medical curriculum into a full four-year school of medicine by 1954. In 1998, the UNC Health Care System was established, bringing together UNC Hospitals and the School of Medicine under one entity. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine Photographic Collection contains photographic materials from approximately 1900 through the 1990s, with the bulk of the materials dating from the late 1960s to early 1970s. Included are images documenting graduating classes, students, faculty, alumni and alumnae, buildings, and activities related to the School. Images primarily depict individuals, classroom and laboratory activities, and events, and, to a lesser extent, work with patients in the hospital setting. Events include groundbreaking ceremonies and building dedications, lectures, conferences and symposiums, commencement ceremonies, Faculty Day, the Senior Banquet, and Parents' Day. Photographers represented include William Brinkhouse, Dan Crawford, and William Burch.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

The University sponsored School of Medicine was established in 1879 with a two-year medical curriculum. Dr. Thomas W. Harris served as Dean and professor of anatomy for the school without receiving a salary from the University. When he resigned from the University in 1895 to focus on his medical practice, the School of Medicine was closed. It remained closed until 1890, when it reopened with a one-year curriculum. The School of Medicine returned to a two-year curriculum in 1896. In 1947, the North Carolina General Assembly appropriated funds for the construction of the North Carolina Memorial Hospital. The hospital (renamed in 1989 as UNC Hospitals) opened in 1952, making possible the expansion of the two-year medical curriculum into a full four-year school of medicine by 1954. In 1998, the UNC Health Care System was established, bringing together UNC Hospitals and the School of Medicine under one entity.
