Hooker Distinguished University Professor

Dr. Harry Lyman Hooker was born in Buffalo, N.Y. and grew up in Hamilton. In 1904 he graduated from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City and went on to practice internal medicine. Upon his death in 1979, the University received a $25 million bequest which supports numerous initiatives across campus.  In the Faculty of Health Sciences, this includes the annual awarding of the Hooker Distinguished University Professor which supports visits from distinguished speakers and lecturers.
