Efforts to expand the preservation and documentation of the University of Kansas Medical Center’s history resulted in the establishment of an institutional archives in 1988. Under the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine, the Archives organizes, preserves, and promotes appropriate use of materials of enduring historical value. The core activities of the Archives include the collection, organization, and preservation of archival materials, and providing assistance to qualified researchers.
