How many people does it take to run an academic medical center?

More than it used to. This photograph of the entire administrative staff of the University of Oregon Medical School was taken in October 1939 (when it included the nursing school, but was not yet affiliated with the dental school). From left to right, we have:

Harry R. Cliff, MD, Superintendent of Multnomah County Hospital
David W.E. Baird, MD, Assistant Dean
Richard B. Dillehunt, MD, Dean
Ralf Couch, Executive Secretary
Lucy Davis Phillips, Secretary to the Dean and Registrar
Bertha B. Hallam, Librarian
