Inscription. The Forth Worth Medical College was established as the medical department of Fort Worth University in 1894 by a group of prominent area physicians. Among those in its small charter class was Frances Daisy Emery, the first woman medical school graduate in Texas. The college moved to this location in 1905, and in 1911 became affiliated with Texas Christian University. In 1918 the medical college relocated to Dallas to become associated with Baylor University's Medical School. During its 24 years in Fort Worth, the medical college graduated approximately 400 students.
