HISTORICAL NOTE

Cooper Medical College in San Francisco, which had antecedents in other medical schools in existence as early as 1858, was formally established in 1882 under the leadership of Dr. Levi Cooper Lane. With the financial generosity of Dr. Lane, the College was able to add laboratories and a hospital during the next two decades, but it was also becoming apparent that new sources of support would be necessary for its continued success. In 1901 Cooper Medical College and Stanford University began to talk about the possibility of a union. Between 1902 and 1907 the details of the merger were worked on and a final agreement was reached by the University Board of Trustees on January 31, 1908.

The first faculty was appointed in October 1908. Stanford faculty included among them were Arthur William Meyer, John Maxson Stillman, Oliver Peebles Jenkins, Frank Mace MacFarland, William Freeman Snow, George Clinton Price, and Robert Eckles Swain. From the Cooper faculty were the following: Adolph Barkan, Henry Gibbons, Jr., Joseph Oakland Hirschfelder, Stanley Stillman, Emmet Rixford, William Ophüls, and William Fitch Cheney. Ray Layman Wilbur was also appointed to the faculty at this time.
