Chicago College of Dental Surgery
HIS branch of Lake Forest University, situated in
Chicago, at the corner of Wood and Harrison
streets, although one of the youngest, is also one
of the strongest departments of the University.
Under the supervision of a faculty of three
professors and eight lecturers, the first regular
course of instruction to students opened on
March 12, 1883, continuing twenty weeks. At its origin, this insti-
tution, known as the Collegiate Department of the Chicago Dental
Infirmary, was a post graduate school, receiving only those as
matriculates who had previously won the degree of M.D. But
owing to the scarcity of such men desiring to take a course in den-
tistry, the close of the second season found the course suitably
changed, and the name altered to the Chicago College of Dental
In 1890 it became one of the professional departments of Lake
Forest, and under the guidance of its efficient Dean, Dr. Truman
W. Brophy, it has developed into one of the largest dental colleges
in existence, with excellent equipment for the study of dentistry
in all its phases.
