Detail of "Medical Center from DeYoung Museum Tower, 1966" (Ansel Adams)


The history of the San Francisco Medical Center dated from 1864 when Dr. Hugh H. Toland founded the Toland Medical College. Although the second medical school to be established in the west, it was the oldest in continuous operation. In 1873, this college, under the leadership of Dean R. Beverly Cole, became the Medical Department of the University of California.
