Hi Les Buell,

Have you tried here:

Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons:

In 1860, by agreement between the Trustees of the two institutions (Columbia 
College and the College of Physicians and Surgeons), the College of Physicians 
and Surgeons became the Medical Department of Columbia College, from that 
time on the diplomas of the graduates were signed by the President of Columbia 
College as well as by the President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. 
The connection was only a nominal one, however, until 1891, when the college 
was incorporated as an integral part of the University.

I hope this information is useful or, at least, interesting.

L'Shannah Tovah* & Happy 5769,

* L'Shannah Tovah (li-SHAH-nuh TOH-vuh; li-shah-NAH toh-VAH)
Hebrew. Lit. for a good year. The common greeting during Rosh ha Shannah and 
the Days of Awe. This is a shortening of "L'Shannah tovah tikatev v'taihatem" 
(or, to women, "L'Shannah tovah tikatevi v'taihatemi"), which means, "May you 
be inscribed and sealed for a good year." This year, the two-day Jewish 
Biblical Festival of Rosh ha Shannah (Lev. 23:23-25) will begin at sunset on Monday, 
September 29 on the civil calendar.
