About Department of Occupational Therapy

The University of New Hampshire Occupational Therapy program was initiated in 1942 as a major program offered by the Art Department of the College of Liberal Arts. It was first accredited by the American Occupational Therapy Association and the American Medical Association in 1945 when it graduated its first student.

In July 1963, led by Prof. Marguerite Abbott, the program attained the status of a department within the College of Liberal Arts and in 1963-64 joined the Biological Sciences Division.

The School of Health Studies was organized in 1968-69 and the OT department started operation within this School in 1969-70.

Series I: New England Occupational Therapy Education Council Minutes, 1958-1982

The New England Council began during the 1958-59 school year. It was started by Frances Carr (from Tufts-BSOT) and Anne Henderson (UNH). The purpose was to share concerns and to communicate about fieldwork issues. The council met once a year. The two schools alternated responsibility for the meeting, holding potluck dinners and even lobster parties (courtesy of Elaine Dixey from Concord State Hospital), for clinicians and fieldwork coordinators. As occupational therapy and occupational therapy assistant schools began in New England, they were invited to join. There are now 23 member schools.
