The "Rush Ones," Rush's Early Alumni

The Rush Ones are those alumni who graduated before Rush Medical College closed its doors in 1942. Until Rush reopened in 1971, these early alumni kept the Medical College’s charter alive with faculty appointments, endowment expenditures and regular alumni meetings.

To honor the Rush Ones and their dedication to the Medical College, the Office of Alumni Relations has published a booklet with profiles of some members of these early classes, as well as an historical account of their contributions to Rush.
