Dr. Samuel Wendell Williston

Photo of Dr. Samuel Wendell Williston, 1851-1918, born in Boston and moved to Kansas in 1857. He attended Kansas State Agricultural College, Manhattan, and Yale University. He was appointed as professor of geology and anatomy and dean of the medical department at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, and helped to establish the KU medical school and served on the Kansas Board of Health.
