In 1956, the Coroner's Committee of the Los Angeles County Medical Association ran a campaign to hire a new coroner for Los Angeles County and bring in a medical doctor to fill the position (medical examiner). In order to do this, the Coroner's Committee had to get a Los Angeles County Charter Amendment passed that stated that the Coroner shall be a physician who is a certified pathologist (LA County Charter Amendment "D"). The amendment also separated the office of the Coroner from the Public Administrator. The committee also wanted to change some policies regarding the Coroner's role and responsibilities in autopsies.

The Los Angeles County Medical Association began in 1878, a professional institution designed to regulate and encourage the development of the medicine in Los Angeles. Since then, the organization has established itself as an important institution in the profession. The Association's library quickly became an archive for the medical history of California and an invaluable research resource for physicians.
