WMC and Hahnemann images
Millions of artifacts... photographs, letters, diaries, objects... chronicle the unique and fascinating history of women and men in medicine.

Drexel University College of Medicine and its Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership are committed to
preserving, protecting, promoting and expanding the Archives and Special Collections by bringing them to the College of Medicine’s Queen Lane campus in Philadelphia, where the Institute and its core programs will reside.
In 1977, to ensure preservation of this unique past, the Woman’s Medical College Archives was created, followed two years later by the establishment of the Hahnemann Archives – and the two collections were subsequently joined.

Now, the Archives is a core program of the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership at Drexel University College of Medicine. It preserves and makes accessible materials on the histories of Hahnemann Medical College, the Woman's Medical College, homeopathy, medical education, women in medicine and women's health.

There are times when opportunity knocks only once.

We think this is one of those times.

Today, the Archives is an active center of scholarship and outreach, interpreting the past to inform current issues in medicine and medical leadership. The College of Medicine plans to include this treasure within the new building planned for the Institute, where the Archives will find a permanent state-of-the-art home.

We urge you to care, as we do, about this chance to make history, as well as to preserve it.

As the campaign planning team, we encourage you to make your gift TODAY.

The entrance to the new Institute building will be a dramatic two-story Atrium, where unique artifacts from the Archives will be on display and where a Wall of Fame will memorialize those donors who have made it possible to bring the Collections home to the College of Medicine campus.
