MCV/Q, Medical College of Virginia Quarterly

MCV/Q, Medical College of Virginia Quarterly
MCV/Q, Medical College of Virginia Quarterly, was a scientific and scholarly journal published by the School of Medicine from 1965 until 1981. Professor of Medicine Sami I. Said, who established the journal in 1965 and served as editor until 1971, designed it to be a publishing outlet for proceedings of symposia, seminars, lectures and continuing education programs sponsored by the institution. Over the course of its 15 years the journal regularly published papers from the McGuire Lecture, Stoneburner Lecture, and other continuing series at the medical school. Faculty from the School of Medicine served on the editorial board and a variety of specialists from both inside and out of the institution rotated as consulting and contributing editors. Richmond graphic artist Raymond A. Geary, a graduate of Pratt Institute, created a variety of colorful and contemporary-styled journal covers throughout the lifespan of the publication. Fairfield Goodale, chair of the Department of Pathology, assumed the role of editor following Said’s departure from Richmond. Frederick J. Spencer, chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine, took over the publication in 1976. He guided it until its demise in 1981, a casualty to the rising cost of publication and distribution. Print copies of MCV/Q are available in Special Collections and Archives at Tompkins-McCaw Library.
