" - A Friend THE HISTORY OF TULANE MEDICAL SCHOOL Tulane University School Of Medicine - 1834 HISTORY OF TULANE MEDICAL SCHOOL Tulane Medical School had i ts auspicious beginning as the Medical College of Louisiana in September 1834. Three brash young medical men, all less than 26 years of age, initiated the beginning of medical education in Louisiana. They were Thomas Hunt, who was to become the first dean of the medical school, Warren Stone and John Harrison. In addition to these three founders, the faculty of the school consisted of four other local physicians: Augustus Cenas, Charles Luzenberg, T. R. Ingalls and E. B. Smith. Dr. Thomas Hunt, Dean 1834 - 1835 and 1852 - 1862 Dr. John H. Harrison Dr. Warren Stone Establishment of the school was met with considerable opposition from the Creoles, whose ideas concerning medical education were based on the European system which stressed academics well grounded in the Latin and Greek classics. The idea of providing medical education without this foundation was utterly in- comprehensible. Furthermore, the Cre- oles regarded all American universities with disdain and considered them hardly on a par with the European universities. When the medical school first opened its doors in January 1835, it became the first medical school in the Deep South and the fifteenth oldest in the country. The Inaugural address was given by Dean Hunt in the First Presbyterian Church. In addition to this church, various other bor- rowed quarters were used for lectures. A lecture room in the State House and wards in Charity Hospital also served as classrooms. These temporary facilities were the only ones available for use dur- ing the next several years, while the facul- ty attempted to secure the necessary funds for construction of a permanent structure to house the fledgling school. In 1836, the governor of the state at- tempted to help the medical faculty ob- tain funding for the erection of a school building. A measure appropriating $60,000 for this purpose was proposed Eind passed by the Senate, but was defeat- ed in the House. It was not until 1843 that any definitive action was taken. On March 22 of that year, a law was passed permitting the medical faculty to erect a building on a lot belonging to the state, on Common Street between Baronne and Dryades Streets. There were two condi- tions attached to the law: first, the faculty should donate their services to Charity Hospital without pay for ten years and second, that one student from each par- ish would be admitted einnually to the medical school for the next ten years. The senator and representatives from each parish were to name each candi- date. The state also reserved the right to reclaim all properties at the end of the ten year period. The fact that this bill gave the faculty of the new school professional privileges at Charity Hospitcil created an uproar among the town ' s medical practitioners. The opposition was based on the belief that the medical school would be given a monopoly over medicine and surgery at Charity. When it was made clear that this was not to be the case, the medical com- munity joined together, resulting not only in the best medical care the city had ever seen, but also providing the school with a clinical teaching hospital that was gradu- ally evolving into one of the top such facilities in the country. Charity Hospital is credited with being the first institution of its kind in the coun- try, having been established in January 1736, almost 100 years prior to the founding of the Medical College of Louisi- ana. The hospital initially opened with a total of five beds and served not only as a hospital, but also as an asylum for the indigent of the city. The original hospital was located on a site in what is now known as the French Quarter and has since occupied four other buildings, in- cluding the present facility which was opened in 1939. Throughout the early 1800 ' s, Charity was one of the largest hospitals in the world. It had the capabi- lity of housing 1,000 patients, although some patients were sleeping on pallets on the floor or sleeping two to a bed. Inter- estingly enough, it was said that " there might be two patients to a bed, but they each had the opportunity to take a hot bath " . At the present time, the number of beds is given as 1,640. However, the lack i of nursing personnel has forced the clo- sure of several wards, resulting in an actu- al number somewhat below this figure. Meanwhile, having obtained legislative approval for professional privileges at Charity Hospital, the faculty immediately set about drawing up plans for a building to house the medical school.

In 1845, a Constitutional Convention speci- fied that the Medical College of Louisiana was to become the Medical Department of The University of Louisiana. Two years later, additional funds were appro- priated to erect buildings for the new uni- versity. The original building was re- turned to the state to be used by the newly established law department. A much larger building was erected adja- cent to the original medical building for use by the medical department. At the time of its founding, the number of medical students consisted of a grand The New Orleans Charity Hospital total of 11. From 1834 to 1859, the num- ber of students grew from 11 to 276. Just prior to the Civil War in 1861, the num- ber of students increased dramatically to 404 because of political and sectional hostility which induced Southern students to abandon Northern Colleges. When the war broke out, most students joined the war effort in such numbers that, in 1862, only 94 students were enrolled. Federal occupation of New Orleans forced the closure of the medical school later that year. In the fall of 1865, the school re- opened its doors with 185 students en- rolling. However, because of the devasta- tion wrought by the Civil War and the subsequent reconstruction, the medical school faced its most trying times. The school struggled financially for its very existence until 1884, when the wealthy New Orleans merchant Paul Tulane be- queathed $1,250,000 for the establish- ment of a university. The state legislature then placed all departments of the Uni- versity of Louisiana under the newly ren- amed Tulane University of Louisiana. This donation enabled Tulane to once again assume front rank among American medical schools. By the early 1890 ' s, rapid growth of the medical school had established the need for new facilities. In 1893, a new building, the Richardson Memorial Build- ing, was built on Canal Street to house the medical school. Although this building was heralded as one of the best equipped medical buildings of its day, by 1907, further expansion was needed. At this time, Alexander Hutchinson bequeathed a large sum in memory of his wife Jose- phine. This fund was used to construct a new Richardson Building on what was to become the Uptown Campus. This build- ing would now house all preclinical de- partments. Facilities of the old Richard- son Building were enlarged for clinical teaching purposes and the building was renamed the Josephine Hutchinson Me- morial. Meanwhile the school was continuously attempting to raise its standards. When the medical school was initially founded, the school year had lasted only four months, and only two full courses of lec- tures were required for graduation. Since only one set of courses existed, the stu- dents were expected to take the same lectures twice. Admission to lectures was gained with a " ticket " purchased at a price of $20. This was the sole means by which the professors were paid. Addition- al fees included a matriculation fee of $5 and a diploma fee of $30. Incidental ex- penses included the purchase of two arms for dissection at 25 cents each, and two legs at 15 cents each. At this time, the only requirement for admission was the ability to finance one ' s education. Graducilly, the annual sessions were lengthened from the original four months to four and one-half months in 1879, then to six months in 1893. In later years, the length of these sessions was further ex- tended until it evolved into what it is to- day. It was also in 1893 that an educa- tional qualification for admission was first required of all students. The minimum qualification for admission was a second grade teacher ' s certificate of a superin- tendent of education. Also, to further strengthen educational standards, atten- dance of three, instead of two, annual sessions was required. In 1899, this was lengthened to four obligatory sessions. By the early 1900 ' s, it became appar- ent that a high degree of disparity existed between different medical schools. In 1908, Abraham Flexner was selected by the Carnegie Foundation to undertake an analysis of the state of medical education. He made a study of 155 American and Canadian medical schools, beginning at Tulane in the winter of 1908. Flexner published his report in 1910, describing shocking and deplorable conditions in many medical schools. This opened the eyes of the public and the medical com- Class of 1910 in the Anatomy Lab Classroom for bandage instruction ¥1 Josephine Hutchinson Memorial Building 1893 ■ 1930 munity such that the Flexner Report was, in effect, an obituary for a great many medical colleges. Within a few years al- most half of the colleges had disap- peared, mostly due to the adverse public- ity. Although Flexner found medical edu- cation at Tulane far from ideal, he ranked Tulane among the top three medical schools of the South. Tulane ' s high rank- ing was based on new and excellent labo- ratory facilities, the teaching faculty, the clinical availability of Charity Hospital, and the post-graduate instruction pro- vided by the New Orleans Polyclinic. In 1913, Tulane reorganized the medi- cal department to include the school of pharmacy, the school of dentistry, the school of medicine and the graduate school of medicine. Today, only the latter two schools remain as part of the present school of medicine. In 1958, the division of hygiene and tropical medicine was es- tablished, which has since evolved into the school of public health and tropical medicine. The Josephine Hutchinson Memorial Building on Canal Street continued to house the clinical facilities of the medical school for nearly forty years. However, by the late 1920 ' s, the building had be- come crowded and obsolete. Funds were provided for a new medical unit to be built contiguous to Charity Hospital in what is now the present location of the medical school. When the building opened in December 1930, it was ac- claimed as the best medical teaching unit in the South. The preclinical departments, unfortu- nately, were still located on the Uptown campus. Nonetheless, it was acknowl- edged that to provide the most enriching medical environment possible, all four years of medical education needed to be consolidated on one campus. It was not, however, until October of 1955 that a ten story addition to the Hutchinson Memori- al Building enabled the second year de- partments to be moved downtown. This left only the first year departments on the Uptown campus, in 1963, further addi- tions to the downtown facility were built to house the first year departments, final- ly enabling the medical school to reunify its entire four classes in one building for the first time since the early 1900 ' s. In 1969, the Tulane Medical Center was established, an organizational struc- ture which broadened Tulane ' s commit- Tulane Medical School Uptown ments to medical education, research and patient care. The Tulane Medical Center Hospital and Clinic, the first such univer- sity hospital in Louisiana, was dedicated in October 1976. This 300-bcd hospital enabled Tulane to consolidate a wide range of patient services in a tertiary care environment, in the few short years since its opening, it has become a major refer- ral center for the region. Since its founding 151 years ago as The Medical College of Louisiana, Tulane has undergone many changes. Several buildings and locations have occupied these buildings; so have federal troops during the Civil War. There have been periods of financial plenty, followed by periods of financial drought. Throughout the years, however, Tulane has always striven to improve its standards of medi- cal education so that today it is ranked among the top medical schools in the country, and perhaps the world. From its meager beginnings in 1834 with 11 stu- dents. The Tulane University School of Medicine has gone on to confer a total of 12,433 medical degrees including those conferred on the graduates of the Class of 1985. Charily Hospital 1939 ■ Present Tulane University School of Medicine THE CRESCENT CITY; NEW ORLEANS 10 An inseperable part of attending Tulane Medical School for the last four years has been the experience of living in New Orleans. When we were sick of the smell of formaldehyde, or tired of studying Micro, or freed after checkout rounds, it was to the city surrounding the school that we turned for entertainment and diversion. Much as learning medicine starts with anatomy, so too does learning a city start with learning its parts. We first became acquainted with the Downtown area, which surrounds the medical school. Like all of New Orleans, this is a diverse area; the Superdome, Charity Hospital, One Shell Square and Camp Street are all within its boundaries. A little further away is the French Quarter, full of bars, tourists, and occasionally staggering medical students. Still further is the Uptown area, where many of us have lived these four years and where, at the undergraduate campus, many of us started our association with Tulane. After learning the structure of the city, we moved on to the way it functions. New Orleans, like any organism, requires food to survive. However, food in New Orleans can vary from the ridiculous to the sublime. How many of us have ever tested our GI tracts with a Lucky Dog in the Quarter? Who will forget the traditional Red Beans and Rice on Monday, or the ubiquitous Popeye ' s Fried Chicken (guaranteed to make your rectum stand up and take notice)? On the other hand, there are Antoine ' s and Galatoire ' s and Commander ' s Palace, where we celebrated our continued success at passing tests. Another of New Orlean ' s ever present diversions is its music. Here again, the city displays its diversity. During the Symphony season, classical music could be heard in the Orpheum (or the pathology lab if Dr. Johnson ' s tape recorder was working). Alternatively, there is a lively popular music scene, with soul, rock and roll, and country and western - for instance, the famous Avogadro and the Moles. Jazz is to be heard thoughout the French Quarter and, in the Spring, at the Jazz and Heritage Festival. Speaking of Festivals, there is that ultimate Festival, Mardi Gras. This probably ranks as the most significant distraction and entertainment New Orleans has to offer. Following an ancient pagan tradition, the city and its inhabitants welcome the return of Spring with the largest outpouring of bacchanalian revelry since the lions met the Christians. Nowadays, of course, little human sacrifice goes on; but medical students can often be found sacrificing their studies for a good time. Furthermore, they will frequently be heard to call out to the local female deities to display their bountiful charms to the worshipful crowds below (cill in good fun, of course). For all the many problems New Orleans has. it has as many attractions, not the least of which is Tulane Medical School. For those of you who leave New Orleans to practice elsewhere, we hope you remember it well; and, if you can find the time, come back to visit " The Big Easy " . If not, a simple " Throw me somthin ' Mister " on Fat Tuesday will suffice. n FRENCH QUARTER 12 DOWNTOWN 13 UPTOWN AND THE LAKE 14 CRAWFIS h ' Seison g FOOD AND DRINK 15 MARDI-GRAS 51 Hr ..t fit BirfltV 16 MUSIC 17 THE FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION 1 18 Stanford Emerson Chaille Dean 1885- 1908 19 Eamon Kelly, Ph.D. President of Tulane University John J.

First mention of the Library occured in the faculty minutes in 1844. The first librarian was appointed by the Dean in 1896. Two library directors, Miss Mary Louise Marshall and Mr. William Postell, were recipients of the Noyes Award, the highest honor bestowed by the Medical Library Association. In 1895, Dr. Rudolph Matas, a brilliant surgeon, began his long history of generosity to the Library which culminated in a large endowment from his estate in 1959. The Library had been named in his honor in 1937. Other endowments from which the Library benefits are those from the estates or families of Maurice Stern, Isaac Lemann, Louis Burgess, James Kenny, Hermann Gessner, and Eva Weinstein. Significant collections acqured by the Library over the past century include those of: the Louisiana Medical Library Association, 1889, the New Orleans Polyclinic, 1904; Charity Hospital, 1905; the Orleans Parish Medical Society, 1928 and 1959; the Louisiana State Board of Health, 1976; the Louisiana State Medical Society Oournals); Dr. Bernard Weinstein (medical fiction); Dr. Elizabeth Bass Library Staff: (left to right) W.D. Postell, Jr., P. Copeland, M. Covington, C. Ross, M. Rennie, C. Goldstein, A. Holliday, A. Elliott, K. Bertel, M. Moore, S. Tadlock, R. Simms, D. Jacob K Puglia A Wills (women in medicine); and Dr. Marcus Feingold (ophthalmology). The first reclassification of monographs began in 1943, and the second in 1960. The library area doubled in 1963 with the completion of the Burthe-Cottam Building. Teletype was applid to interlibrary loans in 1968. Online database searching was initiated in 1973. The Library was extensively renovated, refurnished, and centrally air-conditioned in 1978. Circulation and cataloging systems were automated in 1983. For 150 years, the medical library has served the faculty, staff and students of the medical school. Its vast amount of resources has continued to be a major source of medical information and reference. The Library will faithfully carry on this tradition as long as the medical school exists. 28 One of the many studious medical students who frequent the Library Dr. Rudolph Matas 18601957 29 CLASSROOM FOLLIES ■: : 4 " This diagram should simplify things " Guess who?

And the LORD spake unto Neohomo, who was called Kliph, saying unto him: " Gather ye my CHOSEN, who shall number sevenscore and eight, that you might instructeth them in the ways of healing. Bring them to this place that I have appointed, which place shall henceforth be called Toolain, meaning ' the appointed place ' . Gather them from all the leind; yea, verily, even from the furtherst hinterlands, Kali-phonya and Nyauk, so that they might hear the words of healing. " And Kliph did as the LORD instructed, bringing unto Toolain the best and brightest, that they might learn the healing arts. And when he had gathered together the CHOSEN, Kliph called out unto the LORD, saying, " Oh LORD, 1 have done as thou hast commanded me. Mightily have I struggled, thy wish to fulfill. See thou, I have brought Greeks, and Abrahams, and workers of gold; verily have I striven to bring a diverse class hereunto. " And the LORD spake unto Kliph, saying unto him, " Thou hast indeed fulfilled my wishes. Oh Kliph; and I am mightily pleased with thy handiwork, although I see ill for this one who smiths gold. Nevertheless, thou hast done a good job, and as reward therefor, thou shalt henceforth be called Assistant Dean of Admissions, despite the obvious anachronism. Know thou that I shall test these, my CHOSEN, mightily, lest they fall from the ways of grace. Many hardships and tribulations shall they endure, and often shall they be tested, yea, to start with shall they be tested after each Sabbath, with rare exceptions. Great shall be the knowledge they will learn, and it won ' t be easy, let me tell thee. And know thou that they shall be tested even after graduation, and afflicted with insurance agents and other such foul creatures, yet insolong as they follow my law, so long shall they prevail. " And the LORD began the testing of the CHOSEN. And the first plague that He sent upon them was the fiend Anatomie. And yet the people prevailed against Anatomie, stuffing their minds full of useless trivia; so much so, that the one called Abraham became upset, shouting forth his wrath to the CHOSEN. Fortunately, they ignored him. Others of the CHOSEN reacted to this volume of information more strangely; some by embelishing class notes, others by publishing poor attempts at humorous newspapers. And often did these attempts fail. And during this time there rose up among the CHOSEN two great leaders, who were called El-Alwa and Hojes, the one a binder of packages and the other a davis respectively. And they took upon themselves the task of organizing a great celebration for the CHOSEN, to commemorate the victory over the fiend Anatomie. And mightily did the CHOSEN celebrate this victory, despite the bad music. And the LORD saw these celebrations, and He chuckled, saying unto Kliph, " They still don ' t realize what they ' ve gotten themselves into, do they, Kliph? " And Kliph replied, " No, my LORD. " And yet, despite their ignoreince (or perhaps because of it), the CHOSEN prospered, and continued to learn the arts of the healer, as the LORD wished. And as the LORD had foreseen, he who smithed gold fared poorly, and was lost to the CHOSEN; and so too were many others, who also fared poorly (though not as poorly as the smith). 46 And the CHOSEN continued in their struggle, and the LORD continued His testing thereof. Truly did he test them, sending upon them the plague Biokemm. And yet even this did the CHOSEN master, despite lectures on all variety of flora like mushrooms. And in this time did the Levite, called Terry, set about the task of chronicling the adventures of the CHOSEN. And the LORD continued the testing of his PEOPLE, with the plagues Paath and Phaarm and Peedee. And He sent upon the CHOSEN the monsters Djonsun, who knew much of famous dead physicians, and Doam-a, who knew much of unknown dead words. And when the CHOSEN had bested these trials, the LORD spoke unto them, saying, " Verily dost thou, my CHOSEN, walk in the paths of righteousness, and follow my teaching. And therefore shall I send thee my greatest trial " . And then began the year of greatest toil and labor and deliveries, called the Junior Year for reasons now lost. And the CHOSEN were afflicted with the most horrible of all the plagues wherewith the LORD tested them, which plague he called SKUTT. And the LORD afflicted them with boils, and vesicles, and maculopapular eruptions, and lumbago, and dropsy, cind consumption, and pleurisy; and He sent against them all manner of vicious creatures; terns, and tigers of Elisu, and crabs, and red snappers, and trolls, and Roaches, and sloths who operated terrible machines to carry people up and down but would never stop for the CHOSEN, and verily even did the Lord send chief residents to plague the PEOPLE, and the Big Beeper, and the Big sneeze, and the Upper Motor Neurons, and even these the CHOSEN vanquished. And at the end of the year, the LORD said unto the CHOSEN, " Now mayest thou rest, for truly hast thou struggled and overcome the Tri- als 1 have sent upon you. And now truly art thou studs. Go forth, and celebrate this victory; make merry, and frolick thou one year, because the hard part comes next. For at the end of that year, truly shalt thou enter into the very valley of the shadow of Death; and as you know, val- leys are between hills, and we all know what rolls down hills " . And the CHOSEN did as the LORD com- manded, celebrating for one year and sloughing off their work, for truly were they Senior studs now. And although they thought about the tribu- lations to come, they didn ' t think about them ■? mi J ySS too much, for why spoil a good time? So endeth this reading from the chronicles of the CHOSEN of 1985. 47 Yes Cliff . . .

I I I B li P I h ' 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ! , J We finally made it - we ' re doctors! 1 can hardly believe it; let ' s h ope our pa- tients do. For many of us, medical school has been a " grab-bag " of various emo- tions and feelings; from the ecstasy of delivering new life into the world to the tediousness of defining a rubriblast. There were periods of great depression to insurmountable gratification present with all other feelings in between. It is these emotions that the T-WAVE staff has hoped to capture in this, the fourth edition of the T-WAVE. This book is the culmination of long hours and good group effort. The sup- port of our photography editor, Rob Lo- Greco, throughout the past four years has been invaluable and is truly appreciat- ed. His artistic talent in photography is present throughout the book. The articles in the book, which I believe to be of superior quality, are the brainchildren of Peter Simoneaux. His unparalleled inge- nuity and creativity were essential, if not the highlight, of this book. Peter ' s unique humor, known to us all, closed many gaps in the book, giving the " written word " a continuous flow from describing our ad- ventures in medical school to making un- canny interpretations of our photo- graphs. Along this same vein, Mike Whis- tler ' s brand of humor entered the pages of this book in quite the same way. The help of Dawn Gunter and Jacqueline De- Cayette proved to be an invaluable tool in the production of this book. The year- book photographers do not escape credit for without them, we would not have the remarkable candids taken here. To all my staff, I thank you. Bill Hopkins, our publisher ' s liaison, played an extremely integral part by pro- viding moral support, leading numerous " unscheduled " meetings and having the answer to any question we could come up with. Alan Dufour, our photographic de- veloper cind printer, gave more than he needed to in the form of many " rush orders " . The entire Rudolf Matas Library staff was essential to the History section and was just as enthusiastic about the yearbook as we were. To these people, I truly appreciate your help. I hope that all of you enjoy the T- WAVE. My request is that as our careers progress, you open this book from time to time and reminisce on the good times and glean what you can from the bad. I hope that the experiences we all have had in Charity Hospital (The Big Free) and in the school itself carry with you throughout your careers. I pray that the idealism regarding patient care and rap- port that we all have hopefully developed carry us on to be doctors not only in the medical sense, but in the human sense as well. I feel that the attitude of " living for oneself " and the practice of medicine are not compatible. We have chosen a pro- fession dedicated to the service of man- kind and all the ills it suffers, whether self- imposed or by chance. 1 am regretful, yet honored, to dedi- cate this edition of the T-WAVE to Chuck Wilder. 1 hope that we remember him by becoming the type of physician he would have been; kind and compassionate. Please enjoy this book and 1 wish all of you the best luck in your medical careers. H. Terry Levine Editor-in-Chief ,.«d« t_ u J t Si2 ' ml i ' ■.V " v. % • : ,V, ■ ' ■ .r ■ ' - ■ • V ' VC ' ' . .:.
