University Medical Center Expansion 1968

Image ID: P1, #0283
The groundbreaking ceremony for a major expansion of the university's medical center was held on July 30, 1968. This ceremony heralded the groundbreaking for three new facilities at the growing campus in Birmingham: a new health sciences library (Lister Hill Library), a new basic sciences building (Volker Hall), and a new home for the School of Nursing. Those seated on the platform included the president of the university, the executive vice president, and the deans of dentistry, medicine, and nursing. Looking east from along Seventh Avenue South are, in the background, Jefferson Tower (right) and the construction of the Sparks Center (left).
