A Foundation for the Next Century

A Foundation for the Next Century

Washington University began offering medical education it 1891.  For twenty-four years, the medical school was located in downtown St. Louis.  In the spring of 1915, faculty, staff, and students moved into the newly constructed North, South, and West Buildings (the West Building was also called the Clinics Building and the Dispensary Building).  Each of these three buildings are still in use today, and have been crucial to the School of Medicine's excellence in medical education and research for over 100 years.

A new exhibit in Becker Library's Glaser Gallery celebrates the centennial of the construction of the three original medical school buildings on the “new” Forest Park campus, and also highlights other institutions and buildings that were built on the campus around the same time.  Other features of this exhibit include the campus dining room, bookstore, power plant, as well as Barnes Hospital and Children’s Hospital which also opened their new buildings on the medical campus just months before the medical school moved into the North, South, and West Buildings.
