Collection Physician Assistant History Society Records, 1999-2011
Title Physician Assistant History Society Records, 1999-2011
Scope & Content This collection contains the administrative records of the PA History Society and its affiliate, the PA History Center, from their inception in 1999 to 2011 when the Society became a supporting
organization of the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and the PA History Center ceased to operate as a separate entity. Included are the minutes of meetings, committee reports, financial records, correspondence, newsletters, research files, planning documents, membership records and manuscripts compiled by the directors, archivists and historian of the PA History Office, PA History Center and the Society for the Preservation of Physician Assistant History. Also included are photographs, publications and other related
materials.
Admin/Biographical History As the physician assistant profession surpassed its 35th year of existence, the importance of documenting and preserving its history and achievements became evident. In July 2001, an office for the study, preservation and presentation of PA History (PAHx) was established within the Department of Community and Family Medicine at the Duke University Medical Center (DUMC), Durham, NC. Working with a Board of Advisors, Dr. Reginald Carter, PA-C, the PAHx Office's Director, began developing appropriate strategies and procedures to collect and present, via the internet, materials related to the profession. The PAHx Office began as a collaborative effort
between the Duke University Medical Center (DUMC) Library and Archives, the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), the Association of Physician Assistant Programs (APAP, now the Physician Assistant Education Association, PAEA), and the National Commission
on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA). Other PA organizations soon joined the effort as sponsors of ongoing projects. In October 2001, the office’s Board of Advisors discussed creating a Society for the Preservation
of Physician Assistant History (SPPAHx) to eventually supersede the PA History Office as the preeminent leader in fostering the preservation, study and presentation of PA history. The Society was incorporated in January 2002 and became fully operational in July 2002 under the leadership
of Dr. J. Jeffery Heinrich, the Society’s first elected president.

In May 2004, the PAHx Office was granted "Center" status and the DUMC Archives hired a fulltime, Society funded, archivist to process, maintain and provide archival support for the special collection being assembled by the Society.

In 2005, the Society assumed full administrative and financial responsibility for the PAHx Center and in 2006 moved its administrative headquarters from the DUMC campus to the Eugene A. Stead, Jr. Center for Physician Assistants, a building owned by the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA) located in Durham, NC. The Society’s staff assumed responsibility for establishing and maintaining the Stead Office Museum, Prentiss Harrison Reading Room and wall and display cabinet exhibits at the Stead Center. The PA History Center director and archivist maintained offices at the DUMC archives while the Society’s director and historian occupied office space at the Stead Center. In 2007, the Society’s headquarters was relocated to Alexandria, VA when the Society became a supporting organization of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).

In May 2011, the Society consolidated its administrative, archival and research functions and became a supporting organization of the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) located in Johns Creek, GA. The PA History Center ceased operations and the Society’s administrative records and special historical archival collection were relocated from the DUMC archives to the PA History Society's offices in Johns Creek, GA.
