    Historical Note

    The School of Medicine was established in 1947 on a 35-acre site at the south end of the campus. The first class of 28 medical students was accepted in 1951. In 1954, it moved to permanent buildings; and has grown since. The founding dean of the medical school was Dr. Stafford L. Warren. In addition to Dean Warren, Dr. Charles Carpenter, professor of infectious diseases; Dr. John Lawrence, professor of medicine; Dr. Andrew Dowdy, professor of radiology; and Dr. William Longmire, professor of surgery were the original faculty of the school.
    Jeanne Fulkerson Williams was Dean Warren's first secretary; and worked in the Dean's Office for forty years, rising to the rank of assistant dean.
