Middlesex University Collection- Photographs


The Middlesex University Collection at Brandeis University documents a medical school founded by John Hall Smith in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1914, which closed in 1946 because of its inability to obtain accreditation with the American Medical Society. At the time the university closed, it was located on the campus of what would become Brandeis University, to which Middlesex College transferred its charter. The institution underwent two name changes and was variously called Middlesex College of Medicine and Surgery, the University of Massachusetts, and finally Middlesex University. This collection has research relevance in many subject areas such as the history of medicine, medical school quotas, ethnicity and race in medical education, women and medical education, and Jewish genealogy.
