Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Director of Health Services


Historical Note

The Report of the College for 1875-76 states that "a hospital has been provided and a physician appointed to furnish attendance and medicine to sick students." After being in several locations, the Infirmary moved to the oldest section of Henderson Hall in 1902. In 1920, the health department was established and a full-time health officer appointed. Prior to that time, the duties were performed by the office of the College Surgeon.
