The First 125 Years of the Medical College of Virginia - published in 1963.

A new addition to the VCU Libraries Digital Collections: The First 125 Years of the Medical College of Virginia, available at  MCV celebrated its 125th anniversary in 1963, culminating in the publication of this volume. Issued as hard- and soft-back publications in the college’s bulletin series, the 96-page photo history, largely the work of Thelma Vaine Hoke, was the college's first full-length history. Hoke pulled photographs, letters, documents, reports, and publications for the book from a rich collection of historical materials gathered and preserved by James Ralph McCauley, who served as secretary-treasurer for the college and secretary for the Board of Visitors from 1902 until his death in 1950.

MCV is now 172 Years Old - it was founded in 1838.
