The Founding Figures Collection of Medical Education

Published Date:

The Medical Library has compiled the collective scholarly works of four SIU-SOM “founding figures:” Dean and Provost Richard Moy, Dr. Howard Barrows, Dr. Roland Folse, and Dr. Reed Williams. These documents serve as the inaugural collections in our new archival platform, ArchivesSpace. One physical copy of each work has been placed in the School of Medicine Archives to be preserved in perpetuity. This ensures that the works of these scholars will be available for researchers for years to come.

Highlights of the collection include:

  • Dean Moy’s speech on the History of SIU-SOM
  • Reed Williams’s 2012 lecture on measuring student ability
  • Howard Barrows’s work on Problem Based Learning
  • Dr. Roland Folse’s training video: “Residents as Teachers”

A selection of collection items, as well as a few photographs and awards can be viewed in the library display cases until January 21. To explore the collection, please visit our Archives Space online portal: .

In conjunction with the collection launch, a memorial tribute for Dr. Reed Williams will be held on Friday, January 18th from 3:00 - 6:00 in the Medical Library's Dirkson Conference Room. Please RSVP to Taran Ley, Medical Library Director, at
