Sherman Hall


The Cary-Farber-Sherman complex was built in the early 1950's.  Originally named for Samuel P. Capen, it provided the space necessary to allow the medical and dental schools to move onto the UB campus from their downtown locations.

The Complex is occupied by departments in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, founded in 1846, the university's oldest division and one of the major biomedical research complexes in the SUNY system.

Namesake


DeWitt Halsey Sherman Professor of pediatrics at UB from 1909 to 1929, DeWitt Halsey Sherman (1864-1940) developed the university's Department of Pediatrics and also guided the expansion of Children's Hospital. A graduate of the medical school (Class of 1891), he left the bulk of his estate to the medical school. With the bequest and generous gift of Mrs. Sherman, almost $500,000 was used in the construction of a new medical building (a wing added to then-Capen Hall in 1958).
