"Although the propriety of establishing a medical school here has been sharply
questioned by some, we will not attempt to argue the question. Results will determine whether or not the promoters of this enterprise were mistaken in their judgment and action. The city, we think, offers ample opportunity for all that is desirable in a first-class medical school, and if you will permit me to say it, the trustees and faculty propose to make this a first-class school."
—John Milton Duff, MD
Professor of Obstetrics, Western Pennsylvania Medical College, September 1886
