History

The Harriet A. Woolford Health Center is named in honor of  a 1913 Morgan College graduate. Shortly after graduation, Ms. Woolford was employed as a teacher and dormitory matron at the Branch Preparatory School in Lynchburg, Virginia. In December 1917, a fire destroyed the school, but not before she managed to save all of the students housed in the dormitory. Tragically, Ms. Woolford died after the fire.  Morgan College recognized her heroism by naming its college infirmary in her honor.
