Collection Overview

Title: Occupational Therapy Program RecordsAdd to your cart.

ID: RG/RG028

Extent: 24.0 Linear Feet

Biographical/Historical Note

Washington University established a program in occupational therapy in 1938 shortly after a $200,000 donation was received from Rachel Stix Michael for this purpose. In 1945, the administration of the St. Louis School for Occupational Therapy, which had been in existence since 1918, merged with the program at Washington University. At this point, the occupational therapy program was administered within the School of Medicine, and the curriculum was increased to four years.

Martha Matthews, director of the program from 1956 to 1975, was instrumental in developing the curriculum, increasing the basic science courses, reflecting the increasing emphasis on scientific research in the study of occupational therapy. A graduate program was developed in 1977 to provide advanced training in practice and research. In October 1988, the academic program and clinical service were joined to form the Program in Occupational Therapy. It is through this union that the Occupational Therapy Program carries out its academic mission of research, education and community development, and its clinical mission of service and community education.

Scope and Contents of the Materials
