Description

In 1971, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School began construction of five new buildings, which would be completed in 1974. In this 1972 photo, the basement level of the Florence Building is being built directly in front of the Cary Building. In November 1972, while the construction was in progress, the campus was reorganized and renamed "The University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas." The new campus consisted of three schools: Southwestern Medical School, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and the School of Allied Health Sciences. Dr. Charles C. Sprague was appointed President of the campus.
