Dr. Florence Sabin

Display of Sabin history including old diplomas

Dr. Florence Sabin’s connection to the University of Colorado was a long one. In 1937, she delivered the keynote address at the dedication of the Charles Denison, MD Memorial Library. On her 80th birthday, a wing of the original University of Colorado hospital was named in her honor. When the new University of Colorado Hospital was built in 1962, the building became the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The auditorium that bore Dr. Sabin’s name was used by students until the day the 9th Ave campus was closed. Many of the artifacts displayed here were housed in the auditorium, and when the campus moved, they became a permanent part of the Strauss Health Sciences Library’s collection.
