UAMS Historical Research Center
100 Years of Public Health in Arkansas
The goal of the Historical Research Center is to preserve UAMS history and the history of the health sciences in Arkansas. See our animated timeline. This is accomplished by the collection and preservation of classics in the health sciences, i.e., the History of Medicine and associated collections; and by collecting and preserving the archives of UAMS and Arkansas health scientists.
The Historical Research Center office is located on the second floor, room 2/112. It is open Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00pm. See the Library calendar for holidays. The Robert Watson History of Medicine Room, a component of the HRC, is a quiet study area located in room 1/112 on the first floor. The room was elegantly furnished by Dr. Watson's associates when he retired from the active practice of neurosurgery in 1980.
