Abstract: The California College of Medicine (CCM) records span the years from the establishment of its first predecessor, the Pacific College of Osteopathy in 1896 to 1967 when CCM was incorporated into UCI. The materials document particularly well the two major upheavals for osteopathy in California that occurred at the end of this period: the merger in the 1960s of the Doctor of Osteopathy degree with the Medical Doctor degree, and the merger of CCM with the University of California. Also included are student records and financial documents from 1914 to 1961.


The collection is open for research. Medical records are restricted for 100 years, student records for 75 years, and personnel records for 50 years. Restrictions are noted at the file level.

Historical note

Before it became part of the University of California, Irvine (UCI), the UCI College of Medicine went through several incarnations as a school of osteopathy. Osteopathy splintered from mainstream (or allopathic) medicine in the mid-nineteenth century in a climate of poor, commercially driven medical education and the proliferation of dangerous and ineffective medical practices such as blood-letting and the prescription of calomel and emetics. The first osteopaths were opposed to the use of any drugs for their patients; pharmacology was introduced into osteopathic practice in the early twentieth century. Andrew Still, the M.D. who founded osteopathy, "discovered" the Osteopathic Principle, which states that all disease can be attributed to lesions in the spine, and thus may be alleviated by manipulation of the vertebrae (this is why osteopathy is often confused with chiropractics, although chiropractors do not have the same medical training that osteopaths have, and are only qualified to treat skeletal complaints). Dr. Still began training osteopaths at his American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville, Missouri in 1892.
The Pacific School of Osteopathy and Infirmary (PSO) -- the second osteopathic school -- was established in Anaheim in 1896 by Aubrey C. Moore, D.O., who had studied under Dr. Still, and an M.D., B.W. Scheurer (for a short time, PSO awarded both the D.O. and the M.D.). For the first four years, PSO awarded the Diplomate of Osteopathy, D.O. In 1900 California legally recognized the profession, and PSO began awarding the Doctor of Osteopathy, D.O.
The Pacific School of Osteopathy moved to Los Angeles in 1897, to South Pasadena in 1903, then back to Los Angeles in 1904 into quarters on the corner of Mission and Daly. The school changed its name to the Pacific College of Osteopathy (PCO) in 1904.
In 1905 Harry Forbes, D.O. and several other former members of the faculty of the S.S. Still College of Osteopathy, Des Moines established the Los Angeles College of Osteopathy (LACO). Because LACO offered both a two-year course and a three-year course, the state Board of Medical Examiners did not recognize the degrees LACO was granting. Additionally, the American Osteopathic Association would not accept LACO as a member because there was already an osteopathic school in Los Angeles, PCO. Despite these difficulties, which also included a suit brought against LACO by PCO and a suit against the California Board of Medical Examiners brought by LACO, LACO persisted until 1914 when it merged with PCO to form the College of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (COPS).
There was one other osteopathic school in California during this time. The California College of Osteopathy was founded in San Francisco in 1898. This school merged with the American School of Osteopathy in 1912.
COPS was the most enduring of California's osteopathic schools. It garnered several concessions from the medical profession over the years that enabled it to adequately train osteopaths who were then able to go on to productive careers in California and elsewhere. For example, in 1915 COPS formed an agreement with the Los Angeles County General Hospital (LACGH) to train interns there. COPS brought suit against the Medical Examiners in 1919 after they discontinued recognizing COPS as a qualified educator. During the trial, the burden was on the Medical Examiners to prove that education at COPS was sub-standard compared to education at California schools granting the M.D. degree. In 1921, while the suit was still being argued, the internship program sponsored by the LACGH was discontinued. However, the courts ruled in favor of COPS in June of 1921 (Decision by the Court of Appeal of California, 53 Cal. App. 138; 199 P. 1093; 1921 Cal. App. LEXIS 354). The decision enabled an initiative to be passed in 1922 providing for a separate California Board of Osteopathic Examiners. This eliminated the former problem of M.D.s on the Board of Medical Examiners making all the decisions about the suitability of particular osteopaths to practice their profession. That same year LACGH reinstated the residency training program for COPS.
The California Osteopathic Association (COA), affiliated with the AOA, was incorporated in 1900 as the osteopathic professional organization in California. The administration of COA and the faculty of COPS overlapped a great deal.
The California osteopathic tradition led by COPS and COA ended in 1961 by consensus among these two groups and the California Medical Association (CMA) when the two California medical professions merged and D.O.s were no longer awarded in the state of California. The merger was led by Forest Grunigen, D.O., who had begun talks with the CMA in the mid-1940s. In 1962 all COPS graduates were offered an M.D. degree in exchange for their D.O. degree and a $65 fee, with no additional qualifying examination. The new degrees were problematic for some, the M.D.s were not accepted for licensure out-of-state, and few academic or hospital appointments were given to the former D.O.s, but many went on to have successful careers.
The AOA was vehemently opposed to the merger, and many osteopaths in California agreed. A splinter group, naming themselves the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California (OPSC), was formed in 1960 from the 500 osteopaths in California who decided against exchanging their D.O.s for M.D.s. In 1974 OPSC succeeded in convincing the California Supreme Court to rescind their decision that had formalized the merger. The problems encountered by Californians dissuaded osteopaths in other states from attempting mergers of their own, and the California experiment was a unique phenomenon.
In 1967 after much debate, the UC-CCM was assigned to UCI, and the college, its faculty, and its administration moved to Irvine.

Collection Scope and Content Summary

The California College of Medicine (CCM) records span the years from the establishment of its first predecessor, the Pacific College of Osteopathy in 1896 to 1967 when CCM was incorporated into UCI. There are some items from 1968 to 1970, and a few earlier and later, included to preserve the context of some files. The materials document particularly well the two major upheavals for osteopathy in California that occurred at the end of this period: the merger in the 1960s of the Doctor of Osteopathy degree with the Medical Doctor degree, and the merger of CCM with the University of California. The records are also strong in vital records, including student records and financial documents, created while the college was named the College of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons from 1914 to 1961.
The materials in the California College of Medicine records are primarily textual, and include correspondence, reports, proposals, minutes, agendas, financial and legal records, and memoranda, as well as material related to the research and teaching functions of the college, including syllabi, student work, student records, grade books, and faculty reprints. Photographs, film, artifacts, and memorabilia can be found in the last two series.
Several organizations not a part of CCM or any of its predecessors are also represented in this collection. As osteopathic organizations in California, they had strong ties to what was for many years the only osteopathic school in the state, and their issues and interests overlap. The two most prominent of these groups included here are the Los Angeles County General hospital (LACGH) (its osteopathic unit became known later as the Los Angeles County Osteopathic Hospital), which served as the teaching hospital for many of the school's students, and the California Osteopathic Association (COA), the professional organization that led the D.O./M.D. merger.
Several individuals figure prominently in the CCM Records. W. Ballentine Henley's office files contain correspondence, topical files and reports from his presidency, as well as a set of 22 scrapbooks of newspaper clippings documenting the school during his tenure. Dain Tasker, who graduated from PSO in 1898, and later served as a faculty member, wrote in the 1950s a manuscript history of osteopathy in California, which is included here. Other individuals represented in the records include Forest Grunigen, Grace Bell, Dorothy Marsh, William W.W. Pritchard, and Warren Bostick.

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series contains histories of CCM and its predecessors. It includes a circa 3000 page manuscript dictated by faculty member Dain Tasker in the early 1950s, probably commissioned by either COPS or the COA. In this manuscript, Tasker recounts events, conferences, and discussions between himself and other principle figures in the history of osteopathy in California. He frequently quotes at length from articles, proceedings, and correspondence. Many of the primary sources he uses are found throughout this collection or in California College of Medicine Publications (PS-001). Some of the chapters were assigned titles by the author, and those titles are noted in the container list. For the remaining chapters, the first few words of the text are given as description. For the most part, Tasker arranged his work chronologically.

Series Arrangement Note

The first item in the series is the Tasker history which comprises the bulk of this series. The short histories are arranged alphabetically after the Tasker manuscript by the author's last name, the organization name, or the title of works by unknown authors.

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries documents the governing boards of the four schools. The bulk of the material covers the Board of Trustees for the College of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (COPS), including annual reports (both financial and narrative), articles of incorporation, bylaws, legal and fiscal material, minutes, and rosters. Most of the same types of documentation are available for CCM, though only covering the five years CCM existed. (The Board of Trustees was maintained for several years after the school became the UCI CCM. The researcher should consult AS-026, College of Medicine Records for documentation after 1967.) Pacific College of Osteopathy (PCO) is represented here by articles of incorporation and minutes. There is little representation of the Los Angeles College of Osteopathy (LACO): articles of incorporation and some legal and fiscal material.
The Book of the Trustees is a collection (formerly bound) of annual reports, committee reports, minutes, and other material produced or used by the Trustees of COPS. There is some duplication between the annual reports in this book and those found in this subseries under Annual reports. Neither set is complete.

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

These reports are by or about COPS and CCM. The materials are strong in events surrounding the M.D./D.O. merger, the move of CCM to UCI, and in accreditation documentation. This series also includes the reporter's transcript for the 1920 trial in the suit brought by COPS against the State Board of Medical Examiners. Twenty COPS faculty members and administrators served as witnesses in the trial, and the testimony found in the transcript often includes details of their professional and personal lives, as well as their teaching philosophies and methods. It also includes documents from a suit in 1961 brought by CCM against the California Medical Association regarding the D.O./M.D.
The reports may have been part of either President Henley's files or the Librarian's files. The reports document issues that were of significant and overarching concern to the campus at the time of their creation. Reports concerning accreditation (including accreditation presentations and pre-survey questionnaires) and reports concerning organizations with other regulatory functions contain statistics and other facts about the schools.

Physical Description: 7.2 Linear Feet
Physical Description: no content

Sub-subseries Scope and Content Summary

The Topical files primarily document the later period of Dr. Henley's tenure as President of COPS and CCM. The earliest dates are represented by original articles of incorporation for COPS (found under "Board of Trustees") and the reports found under "Accreditation." The files primarily contain correspondence, as well as reports, minutes, memoranda, proposals, policies, and statistics. Topics include the University of California, financial affairs, campus planning, students, CCM administration, academic departments, committees, public affairs, fund-raising, contracts, the Board of Trustees, Dr. Henley's ethics courses, accreditation, and osteopathic organizations.
These records are particularly valuable in regard to the two upheavals at COPS/CCM in the 1960s. First, in 1962, the California D.O./M.D. merger that was led by COPS faculty and led to COPS' change from an osteopathic to a medical school. Second, the merger of the new CCM into the University of California system and then into UC Irvine, the latter of which resulted in the physical move of the campus from Los Angeles to Orange County.
Of particular interest are letters found under "Students" that include correspondence with several branches of the armed forces for the purpose of convincing them to allow osteopathic physicians (former students) to serve as military doctors. This issue was one of the early reasons for the push to merge the osteopathic and medical professions in California, which began as early as the mid-1940s.

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries documents the activities of the COPS and CCM librarian. The librarian figures prominently in California College of Medicine Records because she maintained many of the records in the collection, and her influence can be seen throughout. The part of the collection for which she probably never served as caretaker is the President's records, which most likely came to the UCI Libraries directly from that office. The material comprises topical files, including policies, statistics, reports, and correspondence.

These files are arranged alphabetically by topic.

Subseries Scope and Content Note

Most of the material in this subseries comprises reference files probably maintained by the college librarian. The files may include publications such as newsletters, bulletins, and programs; circular (form) letters; and minutes.
However, some of the organizations are also represented by original records produced by the organization and donated to either the librarian of the college or to UCI Special Collections. The California Osteopathic Association (COA), in particular, is well-documented here, and some of the material included is more substantive than ephemeral, though there are also several publications.
