Excerpt from The Alumni Record of the University of Illinois, Chicago Departments, 1921: Colleges of Medicine and Dentistry, School of Pharmacy
Several years ago the University undertook the publication of a record of its alumni of the departments at urbana-champaign. Since the College of Medicine, the College of Dentistry, and the School of Pharmacy became integral parts of the University a few years ago, it seemed desirable to publish a similar record of the graduates of these divisions of the University. It seemed further advisable to include their graduates of the periods prior to the times of affiliation with the University of Illinois. We regard them all as alumni of the University.
The reasons for publishing such a record are several. In the first place, it is a convenient presentation of the names, work, and addresses of the men and women who through the years have received their education at the University. Every one of these graduates is interested not only in the University but in other graduates and welcomes such a source of information about them. In the second place, such a book enables the officers of the University to keep informed as to the careers of its graduates and to keep in touch with them, both in their own interest and in the interest of the University.
I take great pleasure, therefore, as this book is issued; in calling it to the attention of the Medical, Dental, and Pharmacal alumni and urging each of them to secure a copy. It will stimulate his interest in the University; it will recall old associations; it will inspire him to do something more for the cause of medical education.
