History of Colcock Hall
"Beginning of an Era of Even Greater Service"
Pictured from left are Dr. H. Rawling Pratt-Thomas, president of the Medical College, the Rt. Rev. Gray Temple, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, and Dr. Thomas A. Pitts, chairman of the Medical College’s Board of Trustees. About the purchase and future of the site, Dr. Pratt-Thomas stated, “The Medical College’s plans for utilization of the Porter site include a library, dental school and medical science building so as to increase the output of these much needed members of the health professions…I believe time will prove that this development enabled each institution to realize its full potential and is the beginning of an era of even greater service.” –News and Courier, August 31, 1963.
