By mid century an urban culture had developed in Columbus. According to the wishes of Lyne Starling, Starling Medical College was designed specifically as a medical school with teaching hospital facilities under the direction of a single board of trustees, and was the first such medical complex in the United States. The president of the board of trustees at Starling Medical College during the formative years was William Starling Sullivant, who initiated scientific endeavors in Columbus that brought national awareness to the area.
