Scope and Content

Over time Tompkins-McCaw Library, Special Collections and Archives has received numerous diplomas and certificates. These have sometimes been single item donations or have come in with larger donations. This finding aid allows users to more easily learn about and locate these items. This collection includes diplomas that span the history of the Medical College of Virginia (MCV), beginning with diplomas issued when it was still a department of Hampden-Sydney College. Also included are diplomas from the University College of Medicine (UCM) which was another Richmond area medical school started by Hunter H. McGuire in 1893. UCM merged with MCV in 1913. There are also diplomas from other medical schools such as the University of Virginia, Jefferson College, and the University of Pennsylvania as well as from various Richmond hospital nursing school programs including St. Luke's Hospital, Old Dominion Hospital, and Virginia Hospital. In addition to the diplomas there are numerous certificates from a variety of medical organizations and from Boards of Examiners. Some items have been digitized and are linked to the digital image, located on the VCU Libraries Gallery site.
