expand icon Biographical/Historical Note
Beatrice F. Schulz, 1912-1999, was in the first class to graduate from the Barnes Hospital School for Physical Therapy Technicians in 1942.  Before her switch to physical therapy, she was an occupational therapist who graduated from the St. Louis College of Occupational Therapy in 1934.  When Barnes Hospital’s physical therapy staff was called to active duty in World War II, she became technical director and chief physical therapist the day after she graduated from the Barnes Hospital program.  She remained technical director when the Barnes School’s certificate program was replaced by Washington University’s baccalaureate course in Physical Therapy in 1948.  In 1948, she also joined the faculty of the School of Medicine where she had enormous influence over physical therapy students for the next 30 years.  Schulz served as director of the Physical Therapy department from 1955 until her retirement in June 1977.
