SCHOOL OF MEDICINE The year 1960-61 marked a milestone in the history of the School of Medicine of the University of Southern Cali- fornia. For, in September of 1960 the freshman class started instruction in the new medical campus adjacent to the Los Angeles County General Hospital. The new facilities had their ultimate beginning in 1885 when Dr. J. P. Widney, with the assistance of some of Los Angeles ' most able physicians founded a Medical Depart- ment for the University. It was the only university medical school west of the Mississippi at that time. The twelve students who comprised the first graduating class paid $315.00 apiece for the entire three-year curriculum, which at that time was one of the longest in the country. Then, as now, the County Hospital provided the chief source of inpatient training. In the school clinics the poor of the rapidly enlarging southern California pueblo of 30,000 were cared for. However, numerous crises lay ahead. The business depression of 1889, inadequate facilities, and lack of endowments severely curtailed the growth of the young school. Unable to overcome these difficulties the school was offered to the University of California in 1909 and it became the Los Angeles Department of the School of Medicine. At that time the College of Physicians and Surgeons, which had just been recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges, became affiliated with USC. This relation- ship continusd until 1919 when the Medical School was forced to close again because of inadequate funds. In 1928 the present school was founded due to the impetus of Rufus B. von KkinSmid, then President of the University. The class in 1928 numbered fifty-four, while the faculty numbered twenty-four. The story of our present growth begins several years ago when Drs. J. Howard Payne, ' 42, and Howard House, ' 35 decided to raise an alumni fund to aid their School. They set their goal at $16,000. That this initial idea was trans- formed into an overwhelming force to have a unified medical center is a mognificant tribute to the dedication and devo- tion of the alumni and friends of the School. The first stsp was the purchase of a twelve acre medical campus site adjacent to County Hospital by the University. Two years later the five story Raulston Research Building was completed at a cost of $1,500,000. In 1959 it was announced that the second and third units of the Medical Center would be constructed. These buildings, the McKibben Building and the Seeley Wintersmith Mudd Memorial Laboratory of the Medical Sciences, were opened for use in the fall of 1960. It II H H 11 I! m ii III If would be impossible to list all the people who have given their time, energy, and money to make the dream of a USC Medical Center a reality. It will suffice to note the efforts of groups. More that $200,000.00 was contributed by friends of the medical school; the faculty donated another $200,000.00; $93,000.00 was given by the Commonwealth Fund; the Medical Alumni Association gave over $300,000.00; tne students (classes of 1955-62; pledged nearly $500,000.00. Two decades of planning hove gone into the new campus. Now, four other units are required for its completion. Only when these become a reality will there be a unified com- plex of all medical disciplines. These new facilities are: the Medical Library; a new Research Building; the Postgraduate School and Medical Forum; and the Medical School Com- mons. The estimatsd cost of these st ructures is close to six million dollars.
