Dr. Thomas Parran : the graduate school of public health
Dr. Parran discusses the problems involved in setting up a graduate school of public health. After World War II, the AW Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust sought an opportunity to aid public health. The decision was made to form a graduate school of public health at the University of Pittsburgh, containing facilities to train students, a research center, and a free outpatient clinic for welfare cases. Dr. Parran talks of his problems in setting up the school, forming a faculty, settling problems arising from conflicting philosophies, and other facets of establishing the school.
