Office of the Associate Dean (Elliott) records

Abstract: 

Records of College of Physicians & Surgeons' Associate Dean Dr. Robert H. E. Elliott, Jr., who served 1966-1972. Elliott does not seem to have had a specific area of responsibility. The records largely document nursing education and more specifically the impact of nursing schools' curricula on the nurse staffing levels in hospitals. They also document the attempt to create a program in "allied health professions" at Columbia which would educate licensed practical nurses, laboratory technicians, and physicians' assistants.
