The John P. McGovern Historical Collections and Research Center has notable historical collections on the foundations of the medical specialties, Texas medicine, rheumatology, and North American public health. The archival collections focus on the development of the institutions and hospitals in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, the careers of Houston physicians, and biographical information on Texas physicians. In addition, the archive includes manuscript collections from American rheumatologists, members of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission, and the life sciences departments at the Johnson Space Center.
We are currently working on digitizing archival documents from the McGovern Collection. Check back soon!
