During Dr. Cameron's tenure as Dean of Hahnemann and, later, President of the
institution, Hahnemann's first long-range program for renewal of the physical plant,
has come into being. By calling on the best planning talent available and keeping
such government agencies as the Redevelopment Authority of Philadelphia and the
City Planning Commission informed of Hahnemann's long range needs, Dr. Cameron
has been able to set in motion the forces which now are bringing to fruition the
dream of a "New Hahnemann."
Under his careful tutelage, the principle of having a core of full-time faculty
members in the clinical departments has been implemented. The extent of growth in
this area can most graphically be shown by statistics revealing that, whereas in-
l956, there were no full-time clinical faculty appointments, there are now 43. Each
of the clinical departments is headed by a full-time professor and most of the sub-
specialty sections are similarly staffed. The validity of this principle has been amply
demonstrated in many ways, most obvious of which is the series of Hahnemann
symposia which have brought to the college world renown among members of the
In another area, that of research, the progress made by Hahnemann under the
leadership of Dr. Cameron has been nothing short of remarkable. ln l956, there
were some S420,000 in funds furnished by industry and government sources for
research purposes. ln 1964, some 52,600,000 in funds from government and industry
will be expended on nearly 200 different research proiects at Hahnemann. lt is
worthy to note that these figures are not a measure of the total research activity in
the institution since there are also underway many starter proiects which have not
yet progressed sufficiently to warrant outside support.
And what of Dr. Cameron's plans for the Hahnemann of the Future? Some
520,000,000 in new construction is contemplated for the next ten years. The first
unit of the "New Hahnemann," the 52,2 million Nurses' Residence and Classroom
Building at l5th and Race Streets, already is functioning and work is well underway
on the second unit, the Bobst Clinical Research Institute and Surgical Pavilion. Plan-
ning for the new Basic Science Building, which will replace the present medical
college building lof i888 vintagel is well along and construction of this building
is to begin in I966. Other contemplated additions to the Hahnemann "campus"
include a residence for medical students and house staff, a student-staff union build-
ing, heart institute, radiation therapy center, and a new ambulatory service building.
Enlargement of the medical college's basic science facilities will permit increases
in size of each undergraduate class by approximately 30 students and doubling or
tripling the number of graduate students in the biological sciences. Also envisioned
are additional disciplines le.g., molecular biology, genetics, biometricsl and perhaps
additional clinical departments.
There are many more details, but the President's concept of Hahnemann's role of,
say 25 years hence, is summed up in his prefatory comments to his recently com-
pleted study, HAHNEMANN: THE NEXT TWENTY-FIVE YEARS:
. . . a complete, first rate, although compact, medical center, embracing
On the four essentials of such a center: education, service to the sick and
injured, research, and community resources for health and welfare."
lt is, therefore, with great pride and pleasure, that we, the graduates of l964,
dedicate this book, a remembrance of our medical school years, to Charles Sherwood
Cameron, M.D., Hahnemann's "Man with a Vision", who is seeing that vision become
