CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS OF THE LYNCHBURG AND
CAMPBELL COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETY
The Lynchburg Academy of Medicine was organized on February 14, 1893, by a
group of seventeen physicians in Lynchburg, and was associated with the Medical
Society of Virginia. In the early 1900s, the Academy began to expand its membership. In
1914, it was expanded to become the Lynchburg and Campbell County Medical Society.
“Every legally registered white physician residing and practicing in Campbell County
who is of good moral and professional standing… shall be eligible for membership.”
(Constitution – p. 1) The Academy was incorporated in 1932 as the Lynchburg Academy
of Medicine. Locally, the Academy was instrumental in creating a joint hospital board to
coordinate the resources of the three hospitals in the city. The group also supported the
establishment of medical library services.
