The Tennessee Medical College was founded by Dr. Cawood in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1889. Originally for male students only, the college opened its doors to female students in 1904. Lincoln Memorial University purchased the medical college in 1905 and maintained it until 1914 when the school was closed due to financial difficulties.
