Medical School Annual Reports

 Collection
Identifier: 18/1/9
The series consists of a run of annual reports issued by the Northwestern University Medical School, later the Feinberg School of Medicine. The reports are arranged chronologically in fifteen boxes and span the period from 1971/1972 through 2005/2006. There are several gaps in this run and reports from the following years are not included in the series: 1988/1989, 1989/1990, 1992/1993, 1993/1994, 1994/1995, 1996/1997, 1997/1998, 1998/1999, and 1999/2000.

Individual reports cover academic rather than calendar years. Reports from the beginning of the series through the 1990s are typewritten and photocopied documents often running to great length and featuring considerable detail. Each typically contains the collected reports of departments and functional units within the Medical School. These departmental and area reports are identified commonly by tabbed dividers found within the annual compilations. Due to their physical bulk, nearly all of these reports are broken into sequential folders. After the year 2000, the annual reports were formatted in a more polished manner suited for widespread public distribution. The reports became relatively brief summary documents featuring much less detail on School and departmental activities.
