which document the origins, achievements and accomplishments of the
Health Science Center at Brooklyn which includes the College of Medicine,
the School of Graduate Studies, the College of Nursing, the College
of Health Related Professions and the University Hospital of Brooklyn
(1950- ) as well as its predecessor institutions: The Long Island College
Hospital (Collegiate Division) (1860-1930) and The Long Island College
of Medicine (1930-1950). The Archives also holds materials which reflect
