About the Hildebrands

The UCSF Fresno medical library was made possible due to a generous donation by Dr. and Mrs. Edward Hildebrand in 2002. Dr. Hildebrand was a long-time Fresno resident with a passion for education combined with medical science. Dr. Hildebrand graduated from the School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Following board certification in orthopedic surgery in 1951, he went on to complete a fellowship in orthopedic surgery with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. It is only fitting this library stands as tribute to his legacy for generations of physicians to come who share the same passion for medicine.
