Gateway to Women's History

The Occupational Therapy program at Texas Woman's University was the first of its kind in the Southwest. Students in the Occupational Therapy program studied on the Denton campus and took clinical courses through Dallas hospitals and completed internships throughout the country. By 1947, the program in Occupational Therapy had gained accreditation from the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education and from the American Occupational Therapy Association.


Notable items include the memo from Dr. John Guinn, President of Texas Woman's University at the time, establishing the Occupational Therapy Department, a history of occupational therapy from 1917 to 1967 written by members of the American Occupational Therapy Association, and a history of the Occupational Therapy Department at TWU written by faculty members Cruz Mattei and Jane Powell
