The material for this booklet was secured through the courtesy of the Co-
lumbia Alumni Federation, and other Alumni Associations, through the State
and County Medical Societies, the Journals of the A.M.A., the P & S Bulletins,
Dr. John Shrady's "College of P & S and Its Founders," Dr. Howard Fox's
"Eliot Quiz," and through the questionnaire sent to the living members of the
class of 1902 P & S. I am indebted to the Bureau of Public Information for the
photographs and descriptive literature.
Miss Serena Jamele of the University Service Bureau of Columbia is really
responsible for the production of this record. My thanks also is due to Miss
Eileen M. Cormody of the State Society for valuable assistance in securing in-
formation regarding graduates of our class. Miss Milfred Melcher of the Dean's
office at P & S also was very helpful. It is regretable that the data regarding
some of our classmates is rather meagre, but it seemed impossible to learn
more of their medical career.
There were 142 members of our class who graduated in 1902. Of this num-
ber 66 are still living.

DR. WILLARD COLE RAPPLEYE
Vice-President in Charge of Medical Affairs
Dean, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York
DEAN WILLARD C. RAPPLEYE
Dr. Rappleye, who has been dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Columbia
since 1931, has had wide experience as a teacher, hospital director and medi-
cal school administrator.
Born in Marinette, Wise, in 1892, Dr. Rappleye received the A.B. degree
from the University of Illinois in 1915 and the M.D. from Harvard in 1918. Be-
fore his graduation from Illinois, Dr. Rappleye was named an instructor in
biology at that university. He was pathologist at the Foxboro, Mass., State
Hospital from 1917 to 1918 and served as medical house officer of the Massa-
chusetts General Hospital in 1918 and 1919.
In 1919 and 1920, Dr. Rappleye was director of the clinical laboratories
and taught biochemistry at the University of California. He served as director
of hospitals and professor of Hospital Administration at California from 1920 to
1922. He then returned east to become superintendent of the New Haven, Conn.,
Hospital and professor of Hospital Administration at Yale from 1922 to 1926.
From 1925 to 1932 he was director of the Committee on Medical Education.
When Dr. Rappleye was appointed dean of the Columbia Faculty of Medi-
cine, he was also named as professor of Medical Economics. He is a trustee of
the Roosevelt Hospital in New York, Vassar College and the Columbia Univer-
sity Press. He is also president of the Josiah Macy, Jr., Foundation and a con-
sultant to the National Institute of Realth and the National Cancer Institute.
He has served as chairman of the board of the Health Insurance Plan and is an
advocate of group medical programs. In 1940 he received a leave of absence
from Columbia to accept appointment as Commissioner of Hospitals for the City
of New York. He returned to the University early in 1942 despite the insistence
of Mayor LaQuardia that he remain in the hospital post.
Dr. Rappleye is married, lives at 542 W. 114th Street, and is the father of
two children, Willard Cole Rappleye, Jr., and Mrs. Alfred Corning Clark, both
of New York City.
As we look back upon the P & S of our time and compare it with the P & S
of today it seems as if we had been deprived of great opportunities! Yet as a
class 1902 P & S has done very well! Its members have been prominent in all
of the medical specialties and in some instances outstanding. We doubtless
lacked some of the advantages of modern medicine, yet by making the most of
those offered to us we certainly have achieved an honorable position in the
practice of medicine.
When we entered the Medical School and first approached the buildings on
West 59th Street we were duly impressed, yet how much more so must the em-
bryonic doctor of today be as he enters the awe-inspiring structures on West
The group which we occupied consisted of the College Building Proper,
the Vanderbilt Clinic and the Sloane Maternity Hospital on 59th Street and
Amsterdam Avenue. The buildings were given by the late William Vanderbilt,
his family, and by Mr. William D. Sloane. They comprised thirty lots of land
bounded by 59th Street, 60th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
Columbia College, one oi the earliest of American institutions of learning,
was founded as King's College in 1754. Its non-sectarian charter provided for
the appointment of ministers from five different denominations for ex-official
governors under the leadership of Dr. Samuel Johnson, its first President.
The first Hospital was chartered in 1771 and built on the five acre lot, a
portion of the old Rutgers farm, located on Broadway between Duane and Worth
Streets, not far from the site of the present building of the BoEird of Health. It
was removed later to a plot lying within Jay, Hudson and Duane Streets. The
corner stone was laid in 1771 but when the Hospital was nearing completion it
burned down. This was in 1775 and the next year the Committee of Safety took
charge of the property for military purposes and the library and equipment were
moved to the City Hall for security reasons.
In 1784 P & S opened under the name of Columbia College. In 1791 the re-
gents were empowered to create the College of P & S which however was not
duly chartered until 1807. The first building was known as No. 18 and located
on the south side of Robinson Street forming part of Park Place. The first
large supporting fund came from the "Literature Fund Lotteries" and amounted
to $20,000 paid in installments of $5000 each.
In 1809 the Medical School had a building of its own at 553 Pearl Street.
This was obtained through the efforts of Dr. Romayne, one of the original
Founders. In 1811 the first public graduation was held with eight graduates.
From 1813-1817 the school building was at 3 Barclay Street. Dr. Hosock, the
teacher of Pharmacology, purchased from the city twenty acres bounded by
Fifth and Sixth Avenues, 47th and 51st Streets, the leasehold of Columbia
College. This property was laid out as a botanical garden named by him the
Elgin Botanic Garden. This was entrusted to P & S but later reverted to Co-
lumbia College. The value of this property today to Columbia will be realized
when it is remembered that it is the location of the Radio City!
The College occupied buildings on Fourth Avenue at Twenty-third Street
from 1856 to 1887. Under its tenth president, Dr. John C. Dalton, the College
came into possession of the buildings on West 59th Street.
On July 1,1891, the College of Physicians and Surgeons through legisla-
tive measures became a part of Columbia University. On the west side of the
vestibule at the entrance on Fifty-ninth Street was a tablet marked witli the
various locations of the School.
No. 18 Robinson Street 1807-1809
No. 12 Magazine Street 1809-1813
No. 5 Barclay Street 1815-1837
No. 67 Crosby Street 1837-1856
No. 101 East Twenty-third Street 1856-1887
No. 457 West Fifty-ninth Street 1887-
Another tablet reads:
This College was chartered by the Regents of
University of the State of New York
March 12, 1807
and was co-instituted the
Medical Department of Columbia College
June 6, 1860
These large tablets have been transferred to the new P & S building at the
Medical Center. During this period the Medical School had grown from six stu-
dents to over eight hundred.
Dr. Seth Low v\as president of Columbia University while we were studying
but soon after our graduation he was succeeded by an equally famous educator,
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler.
It was indeed a noteworthy group of men who directed our medical training!
There were John W. McLane, Dean of the Faculty; Thomas M. Marcoe, Profes-
sor of Surgery; T. Gaillard Thomas, Emeritus Professor of Obstetrics and
Gynecology; Professor Delafield in Medicine; John G. Curtis, Professor of
Physiology; George L. Peabody, Professor of Materia Medica and Therapeutics,
George M. Tuttle, Professor of Gynecology; Edward B. Cragin, Professor of
Obstetrics; William T. Bull, Professor of Surgery; also Robert Weir, Joseph
Blake, George E. Brewer, Charles McBurney, all distinguished surgeons;
Walter James in Medicine; M. Allen Star in Neurology; Virgil Gibney in Ortho-
pedics; Andrew J. McCosh, famous surgeon, and Robert Abbe; also Charles N.
Dowd, and Charles H. Peck; Royal Whitman, Abraham Jacobi and L. Emmett
Holt in Pediatrics; Dr. Prudden, Francis C. Wood in Pathology; Arnold Knapp
and Charles H. May in Ophthalmology; George M. Lefforts, famous for his ora-
torical demonstrations in Laryngology; "Cut to the right of you, cut to the left
of you and for God's sake cut** as he used to shout in discussing Oedema of
the Glottis; James J. Voorhees and many others who achieved national promi-
nence. Such an array of talent could not help but inspite the students, although
some of these teachers were not particularly good lecturers! This is probably
as true today as it was forty years ago! Most of the teaching was by didactic
lectures and consequently classroom work was greatly neglected. The result of
this was that many of the men had to depend upon outside quizzes for prepara-
tion for the strenuous hospital examinations which were necessary for appoint-
ment to most of the New York Hospitals.
Of these quizzes the most prominent was that conducted by Dr. Ellsworth
Eliot. He was an outstanding surgeon, attending at Presbyterian Hospital
among others, and a most remarkable teacher. He established his quiz in 1890
and it continued until 1913 when due to the adoption of more, classroom instruc-
tion in the medical school, it was no longer needed. During this period there
were 476 students who were members of this quiz, the majority of them college
graduates. Practically all received desirable hospital appointments. The com-
petition for these positions was quite different from what it is today. Presby-
terian selected the most interns from this quiz, 76 in number; Roosevelt, 75;
St. Luke's, 54; New York Hospital, 50; Bellevue, 49; Mount Sinai, 27; Post
Graduate, 16; City Hospital and the Lying-in Hospital, 15 each; and Gouveneur
Hospital, 11. Many hospitals outside of the city also welcomed men from this
quiz. The instructors were men of standing in the various hospitals in New
York: Dr. William R. Williams of New Yofk Hospital in Medicine; Dr. Taylor in
Surgery with Dr. Eliot; Dr. Meara in Pharmacology; Dr. Darrach in Anatomy and
Dr. Frank Oastler also conducted a most excellent quiz. As these quizzes
involved considerable extra expense it was fortunate for the student that this
system of instruction could be abolished.
Tuition in our day was $200.00 which indeed represented a very small part
of the cost to the University for the education of each student. The present
tuition is $650.00 and this also is a fraction of the cost.
When we entered the medical school Dr. James M. McLane was Dean of the
Faculty. He was succeeded by Dr. Samuel Lambert who was instrumental in
establishing classroom recitations.
Dr. William Darrach followed Dr. Lambert. He was assisted by Dr. Frederick
Van Buren, a member of the class of 1902, P & S. Dr. Darrach retired in 1931
and then he was succeeded by Dr. Willard C. Rappleye, the present Dean. He
is instrumental for the reduction of the number of students in each class and
for many other beneficial changes.
New York, N.Y. W. Morgan Hartshorn
November 6, 1949
P & S IN 1949
It is a far cry from the P & S of 1900 with its three rather inadequate build-
ings and the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center of today embracing eighteen
fireproof steel, brick and concrete buildings each floor connecting with the
wards and services of Presbyterian Hospital, Sloane Hospital for Women and
Since 1917 women have been admitted to the Medical School on the same
basis as men. In 1945 the medical faculty was made responsible for the educa-
tional program in Medicine, Dental and Oral Surgery, Public Health and Nurs-
ing, Occupational and Physical Therapy and the School of Tropical Medicine
in Puerto Rico. Each school has its associated dean. Due largely to the pro-
gressive policy of Dean Rappleye there are marked changes in the curriculum.
The number of students is limited to 100 or 110 for the entering class. This
makes the selection of students a difficult matter as the number of candidates
range from twenty-one to twenty-eight hundred. More than two-thirds of the ap-
plicants reside outside of New York City and in 1948 fifty-three percent lived
outside of the state. The 116 students accepted for admission came from sixty-
two colleges and from eighteen states. Eighty of the 116 were war veterans.
After discussion with the Medical Board of the Presbyterian Hospital, a
plan has been developed for moving the New York Orthopedic Hospital and
Dispensary to the Medical Center. Due to the excessive cost of construction
the plans for a private patient pavillion have been modified. The new Francis
Delafield Hospital for malignant tumors is expected to be ready for occupancy
in 1949. Plans for the Public Health Center on Riverside Drive have also been
modified by omission of the Hospital for Tropical and Contagious Diseases.
The uncertainty over the continuity of the School of Tropical Diseases has
been removed as Columbia has been invited by the authorities in Puerto Rico
to continue the school.
Since 1944 the voluntary hospitals and clinics have been consolidated
into a single corporation under the Presbyterian Hospital, although they func-
tion as separate units. The Medical Center group comprises The College of
Physicians and Surgeons; School of Dental and Oral Surgery; School of Nurs-
ing; School of Public Health; Washington Heights Health and Teaching Center;
New York State Psychiatric Institute; The Presbyterian Hospital and its sub-
divisions; The Squier Urological Clinic; the Institute of Ophthalomology;
the School of Occupational and Physical Therapy; Harkness Pavillion; Sloane
Hospital for Women; Vanderbilt Clinic; Babies Hospital; Neurological Insti-
tute; the New York Orthopedic Hospital and Dispensary; and the Mary Harkness
Convalescent Home. Other Hospitals are also used for teaching: Bellevue
Hospital; Goldwater Memorial Hospital for Chronic Diseases on Welfare Island;
Hospital for Joint Diseases; Hospital for Special Surgery: Institute for the
Crippled and Disabled; Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital, a unit of the Jersey
City Medical Center; Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital, Coopertown; Montefiori
Hospital; Morrisania City Hospital; Mt. Sinai Hospital; Roosevelt, St. Luke's,
Willard Parker, and Women's Hospitals.
The requirement for admission to the first year class is three full academic
years at an approved college covering a definite course in the sciences. Pref-
erence is given to those students who in the opinion of the committee on ad-
missions shows evidence of high achievement in their college education and
are considered most likely to succeed in medicine.
It is interesting to note that the average expense for the college years is
S2025, while the minimum is estimated to be about $1626.
In 1948^9, the fourth year class numbered 102 students; the third year
class, 110; the second year class, 105; and the first year class, 114. About
10 percent are women. The School of Public Health registered 106 students;
the School of Nursing, 307; the Dental School, 122; and the School of Occupa-
tional and Physical Therapy, 131.
The students health service has the responsibility of providing medical
care for all students registered under the Faculty of Medicine with the excep-
tion of the undergraduate nvu-se. This includes a complete physical for all
first and third year students in the medical school, of dental students and of
those in the School of Occupational and Physical Therapy. Daily consultation
hours are held. Plans are under way for the expansion of these services to
include hospitalization through the Associated Hospital Service.
The Selective Service Act of 1948 has presented new problems in medical
education. It provided deferment for a certain number of students desiring to
study medicine, but these young men should be allowed to complete their hos-
pital service before being called into service. It is hoped that the military and
naval forces improve their medical standards making the service much more
attractive through professional opportunities and more rapid advancement.
The P & S Alumni Association has been most active during the past few
years and the annual dinner in the spring with its interesting speakers has
been well attended. At this dinner the fifty year class are among the honored
guests. In three years we will be among the guests!
For more detailed information regarding the P & S of the present time the
reader is referred to Dean Rappleye's fine report and to the latest Columbia
Bulletin from which this resume has been freely taken. Both of these will be
sent upon request.
With its distinguished faculty, its magnificent buildings and equipment, its
opportunities for clinical instruction, the College of P & S stands foremost
among the medical schools of the world.
