From the Archives: Did grandpa go to school here?

By John Schleicher

Or great-grandma? Or Uncle Charlie or Cousin Kate? A number of Nebraska families have several generations of graduates and/or faculty members of the various health sciences colleges at UNMC. Karrer, Gentry, Wigton, Cloyd — just to name a few of those families.

The archives has various research resources available if you are interested in finding out more about a relative or ancestor who graduated from UNMC, was a faculty member here, or a health professional in Nebraska, from the late 19th through the 20th century.

To visit the UNMC archives, contact the Special Collections Department at 402-559-7094 to schedule an appointment or inquire at the AskUs desk on the 6th floor of Wittson Hall.
