Have you ever wondered what you needed to apply for medical school in 1922 or how much tuition cost in 1871??   Or how many females graduated from UB’s Medical School in 1896?

These questions and more fascinating pieces of information can be found in the new “175 Years of Medicine at UB” guide, created by librarians Matt Gadziala and Nell Aronoff.

A particularly fun table of “yells” published in early yearbooks includes “Chic-a-ruck-a-rew!” from 1902, and “Cut, slash, carve, Stir, rub, mix” from 1906.

The guide includes sections on People (Founders, Faculty, and Alumni), Places (the five buildings that housed the Medical School from 1846 to today), and Resources (Books, Digital, Oral Interviews, and University Archives and History of Medicine holdings).

Enjoy a few relaxing minutes browsing!
