cm t=Uap, ' 13 History of College HREE quarters of a century ago last De- cember the question of establishing a medi- cal school in the city of Richmond was determined by the Board of Trustees of Hampden-Sidney College, and " Regula- tions for the Medical Department of Hampden-Sidney College " were adopted. One of these required the session to " com- mence on the first Monday of November of each year and continue until the last week of March ensuing, mak- ing a term of five calendar months. " At that time a student could get his degree in one session, the following being a part of the requirements for graduation: " As attainment is the only just foundation for distinction, any student sh all be permitted to present himself for examination at the close of each session, provided, how- ever, he has previously attended in this department one full course of lectures on all the branches taught therein, together with attendance upon the dissecting room of the college for one session, and shall have studied medicine with a respectable practitioner for two years. " Until the completion, in 1845, of the building in which the past session was held, lectures were given in what had formerly been the Union Hotel, located on the south- west corner of Nineteenth and Main Streets. Mordecai ' s " History of Richmond " refers to this as follows: " The Medical College is of modern date, ha ing been established in 1837 by the united influence and exertions of Drs. Chamberlayne, Cullen, Warner, Maupin and Bohannon. The Union Hotel (Nineteenth and Main Streets) was con -erted into a medical school and hospital. Limbs, instead of cutting capers, were cut in pieces in the ballroom; potions were mixed instead of punches; poul- tices supplanted pudding and Seidlitz water, champagne. Now the former order of things is reinstated at the hotel, and young doctors are diplomatized and patients are phy- sicked in the Egyptian edifice on the old Academy or Theatre Square. " The first session began on the first Monday in No- vember, 1838. There were 46 matriculates and 14 grad- uates this session. The Faculty, six in number, - ' as as follows : Augustus L. Warner, M. D., Professor of Surgery. John Cullen, M. D., Professor of Theory and Prac- tice of Medicine. R. L. Bohannon, M. D., Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children.
