Rush Medical College.—" Fire," says Professor Allen, "'the good servant but bad master,'like Aladdin's genius when the charm was broken, assumed its terrible supremacy, and on that fatal October night we all remember, one of our number, looking across to the sea of flame from a distant height, saw the walls and the roof lapped by fire; and then the crash came; a column of blazing gases and lurid smoke rose upward like a huge bouquet culled from Tartarus; then the ruin and shapeless heaps," of what was Rush Medical College.

Three days after the fire, several students having returned, lectures re-commenced in the amphitheatre of the old County Hospital. A temporary building was erected on the grounds of the hospital, known as the " Eighteenth-street Tabernacle," in which succeeding sessions were held until 1876. In 1875, a lot on the corner of West Harrison and Wood streets was purchased for $i 1,000, upon which was constructed the new building, at a cost of $43,000, nearly all contributed by members of the faculty. The building is complete in its provisions for every department of medical instruction. Being located near the Cook County Hospital, the clinical department of instruction has unexcelled advantages. The anatomical and physiological departments are furnished with large rooms, supplied with all the modern conveniences and improvements.

 

The faculty of this college (since 1871-72) has been as follows:

Professor of anatomy and surgery: Moses Gunn, 1866-85.

Professor of chemistry and toxicology: Henry M. Lyman, 1871-77: Walter S. Haines, 1877-85.
