Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 11, 1976):
From 1920 to 1939, this two story clapboard structure was the residence of Charles Richard Drew (1904-1950), the noted black physician and teacher, who is best remembered for his pioneer work in discovering the means to preserve blood plasma. Drew had the distinction of being the first African-American to receive the Doctor of Science in Medicine degree.
